It's back-to-school time! If your child struggled last year in remaining focused, demonstrated difficulty in peer relations, or you received phone calls regarding your child's behavior, get a head start this year by helping your child learn behavioral strategies and emotional control. Through a warm and accepting environment, I work with children, adolescents, and parents in helping them identify strengths, enhance skills, problem-solve, and structure home schedules to improve behaviors, interactions, and emotional balance. Together, we can work to help your child feel more stable and successful.

Everyone has the ability to overcome difficult situations in life with the right tools. Maintaining mental health is key in working towards a life with more success and happiness. This can mean being able to process emotions, learning to become more aware of negative emotions and finding ways to overcome difficult situations. There are times when life feels like it becomes unmanageable and there is no solution. You do not have to go through this journey alone, that is what I am here for. I use evidence based practices and will help you track your progress. I use techniques from CBT and DBT therapy.

In life, there are times when we need to face challenging situations and make changes, but we may need help to think things through. I work from the perspective that all of us can bring certain strengths to bear and that we can benefit from self-understanding in order to use our strengths to the best of our abilities. Through a collaborative framework, I help people cope with the pressures of everyday life, transitions that are challenging and/or stressful as well as longstanding concerns such as learning difficulties, anxieties, mood problems, interpersonal concerns, and life transitions.

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