Programs and Services

It’s all about you
Much of what I do, the strategies employed, your rate of progess, the style I use as your therapist, is largely dependent on you. I do not use “one-size-fits-all” templates for individualized treatment. Everybody is unique, so every therapeutic session should be unique and tailored to you, your preferences, your unique situation and profile of strengths, weaknesses, values, and beliefs. So it is difficult to say, “I use this program for” … ADHD, etc. Because I know that through your one-of-a-kind therapeutic relationship with me, we set you own goals, your individual course, the way each person gets results and what results they want to see is created specifically for you.

Social Skills Groups

I no longer offer these, but I have created a course to learn how to teach social skills through play for children aged 4-8 here.

School Consultations
I can go to your child’s school, with the school’s permission, and conduct an outside and objective observation of your child’s school performance and programming, and generate recommendations for school and families to work together on increasing the likelihood of the child meeting established goals. I am not interested in furthering adversarial relationships between school and home.

Individual Analysis Program
Evaluation, depression and anxiety (go together), goal setting, motivation, prioritization, generating options, choosing strategies, evaluating progress and results, fine-tuning, creating meaning and purpose, action plans
