My ideal client is a child or adolescent who is aware of the issues that are bothering them and want help. These are clients whose parents are comfortable with them seeing a therapist and are able to speak openly with them about their diagnoses. When I am asked how long I see a client, I do not give a definite time since I have learned that issues are challenged as they make the transition to new schools or jobs. I let parents know that I take a developmental approach to psychopathology. We may stop when symptoms decrease and their coping capacity increases. If they return it is not a sign of failure but different stresses.
I work with young children and adolescents struggling with anxiety and depression. I also have run for the past 20 years a therapeutic program for high functioning preschool, school age and middle school students on the Autism Spectrum and their parents. Lastly I am seeing young adults struggling with the transition to college.
I would be happy to talk with you if your are interested yourself or for your child. I have very little time open after 3:00 in the afternoon and I do not see clients on the weekends or past 7:00.
