My Approach to Helping
I provide the only evidenced based treatment for behavior disorders in childhood, Parent Management Training (PMT). I believe that negative patterns in our families support behavior in children that disrupt family and school life. There are a million reasons that these patterns get started but knowing how to straighten things out can be difficult. I have trained with the best in the country and I can teach you how to help your child learn to behave in ways that no longer cause your family to live in chaos. Problems from ADHD, anxiety, depression or oppositional defiant disorder can be addressed and are completely eliminated in a majority of families that engage in treatment.
More Info About My Practice
I am trained in the treatment for behavior problems that was developed at the Yale Parenting Clinic by Dr. Alan Kazdiin. This treatment is the only evidenced based treatment for behavior problems in childhood. I conduct all of my sessions online so you can be anywhere to engage in treatment. I love working with families to help solve problems and overcome difficult times so they can repair their relationships.
My Role as a Therapist
My role as a therapist is to be a coach and teacher to parents who are struggling with their children's behavior. I find that helping parents become leaders in their homes, and leave at the end of our work feeling in control of their homes, and feeling competent to parent their children is one of the most rewarding parts of my professional life. Watching parents become confident with the school, their peers and each other is a wonderful experience.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Most families spend about 12 sessions with me but it is an individual plan. Each session is about one hour.
