TherapyAt our practice, we see children, adolescents, and adults seeking help for a variety of concerns. We work with individuals, couples, and families. For some, treatment is to ameliorate emotional, psychological, and/or physical pain. Others seek treatment to master a personal challenge, be it in their relationships, educational or work endeavors, or to overcome a personal limitation and enhance their performance. When working with children and adolescents, we strive to create a balance between the personal privacy necessary to establish a therapeutic relationship and the necessary collaboration that must occur with family, educators and medical personnel to maximize change. We extend this collaborative approach, when appropriate, to our work with adults, often consulting with spouses, other family members, physicians, employers, lawyers, etc. as part of our therapeutic work.
In treatment, we draw from a very broad range of therapeutic techniques, attempting to use the best approaches, that show the most promise, both in research as well as in our clinical experience. Here are some of the concepts/approaches that we frequently use: cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, hypnotherapy, family systems theory, psychodynamic concepts, relaxation therapies, psychopharmacological therapies, and the cooperative problem solving strategy, to name a few. You are as likely, as have our clients, to find that our understanding of the brain processes underlying many human difficulties offers the possibility of developing a treatment that increases the likelihood of a more complete and satisfying solution. We strive to tailor our choice of techniques to fit you, the individual with whom we are working in order to formulate individualized solutions to your concerns, problems, and/or challenges.
Rather than create a comprehensive list of problems for which we have both training and years of successful experience to help you develop healthy solutions, we encourage you to call and ask if your particular problem, challenge, or need is one with which we have training and experience.
