Approach

My approach is to engage patients in the treatment process by guiding them and helping them identify their strengths to reach their individual goals. Treatment interventions come from different therapy approaches that  are tailored to the individual’s needs. Work with children/adolescents is focused on problem solving and strengthening the parent-child relationship. Resources are often an adjunct to the services. See below the list of therapy types
