My practice focuses on 3 main areas: (1) Troubled, at-risk, substance abusing, delinquent adolescents, including those with oppositional defiance, conduct problems, disruptive behavior, and intermittent explosive disorders, I have also helped middle school youth work through issues with self-injurious behaviors "cutting", separation anxiety, school refusal, and self-esteem.
I work with individuals and families that struggle to connect in traditional therapy settings and who may have had challenging or problematic experiences with therapy in the past. I have a, "How can we do it different this time?" approach. I believe it is important to support clients in driving their own treatment through self-determination. I often use cognitive behavioral (CBT), solution focused, reality, person-centered, and experiential approaches to therapy. I look at each person from a "strengths perspective", how an individual relates to the environment around them and how they interact within their family system.

Welcome! My practice is open during early EVENING hours to accommodate all schedules. I have been fortunate to have 16 years of counseling experience in both the school setting and the private sector. I have had the pleasure of working with clients ranging in ages 4-18, adults, and with families. While working with children and adolescents, I believe that the family dynamic is an extremely important part of the therapeutic process, and will often involve parents and siblings in therapy when it is helpful. One of my specialties is working with parents to help with parenting struggles-- from the very young ages to teen years.

My ideal client is interested in both understanding the "why" a psychological issue has brought them to me as well as how they may address it. Many times, patient's will present for treatment with the belief that if they gain insight into their issues that they will resolve. For others, they may want the issues "fixed", but are not willing to look into the patterns of how they arrived there.

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 Alpharetta or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Alpharetta, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Alpharetta.
