Congratulations on taking a step towards change and feeling better! I have had the honor of working with individuals, couples and families in residential and outpatient settings and have witnessed people change and reach unique and individualized goals. I use a variety of techniques such as experiential, CBT, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Gestalt and psychoeducational modalities. I use EMDR to help clients recover from traumatic, disturbing and shame-based memories. I help clients find the motivation to change their unsatisfying patterns by empowering them to identify, express and prioritize needs and to stay focused on their goals.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Durham or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Durham, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Durham.
