"Ideally when a person enters therapy they are ready for change. To me this means that a person is willing to walk along with their therapist rather than be lead by their therapist. It is so important for us to take charge where we can, even if it's only when we have the support and guidance of a clinically supportive relationship, like that with a therapist. I ask that my client's be willing to walk with me on the road to change. "

I believe that people are more than a diagnosis or static label and my work places an emphasis on the person with a challenge rather than simply focus on the challenge alone. The therapeutic process is more than helping a person to develop positive thinking or an optimistic attitude, but involves helping the person gain an understanding of how they can approach the world to obtain the greatest satisfaction from their relationships, their work and their life in general.""

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