Parents sometimes face very important questions about their children, including: Does my child have ADHD or a learning disability? Why is my daughter having so many social difficulties? Is my son's defiance a normal part of his development? Is my teenager depressed? Are my child's worries normal for someone her age? Does my preschooler have a developmental delay? Is my child gifted? Is my daughter suffering post-concussion syndrome after her sports-related injury? Psychological and neuropsychological evaluations are used to answer these and other questions about a child’s development and needs.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I am passionate about helping my clients gain insight about their mental and emotional strengths and weaknesses through an objective and comprehensive evaluation by using standardized testing tools. Once all the information is gathered, I will offer extensive feedback regarding the results and make recommendations to help you or your child get the treatments or services needed.

I support children, teens and adults who are feeling overwhelmed and looking for a sense of control over their lives. Sometimes overwhelm can feel like worry or sadness. Sometimes it shows up as anger or self-harm. It can impact relationships or problems at work or school. And it can also feel hopeless at times. The good thing is, you don’t need to go through it alone. Therapy can help you use the tools you already have and help you discover strengths you might not have noticed before, so that you can build the life you imagine.

Our fears, our lessons, our challenges, our growth are built upon experiences in life. These include our beliefs about ourselves, attitudes of life and death, and behaviors that we have developed throughout our lives. We bring all our experiences with us when we become involved in therapy. Within the privacy of therapy, I can help you identify the beliefs, attitudes and behaviors that no longer are beneficial in navigating life. Usually when a person seeks counselling, they already know that something is impacting their ability to cope, but I help to bring clarity where confusion is present.

Oppositional Defiance (ODD) Therapists

What is the most effective treatment for oppositional defiant disorder?

The treatment of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) will involve multiple approaches designed to help both the youngster and their parents, sometimes including medication. A therapist will help a child learn ways to regulate their emotions, curb their impulsiveness, and counteract anger, defiance, and disruption, while showing parents ways to bring these lessons into their home. A technique designed for children with conditions like ODD, known as Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS), may also be used. CPS addresses a child’s concerns and rewards appropriate responses while discouraging harsh punishment or criticism.

How does treatment for oppositional defiant disorder work?

Treatment for ODD addresses the issues underlying a child’s defiance and disruption, the emotional regulation and impulse-control skills they lack, and the way adults respond to them. ODD therapy is based on the idea that children with the disorder understand the difference between right and wrong, that they want to behave well, and that, with help, they can. By responding to the child with empathy instead of harsh criticism, ignoring nonviolent behaviors, and rewarding positive actions, a therapist, and the other adults in a child’s life, can help children improve their behavior.

How long does therapy for oppositional defiant disorder take?

Therapy for oppositional defiant disorder is not a short-term undertaking. Depending on the severity of a child’s symptoms, their age, the presence of other conditions like ADHD, anxiety or a mood disorder, and their family dynamic, it can take months before improvement is noted. The cooperation of parents and teachers is crucial, because the skills learned in therapy must be practiced in real-world situations, with all their potential triggers.

Does oppositional defiant disorder go away?

ODD can remit following treatment. ODD is often diagnosed in nursery school, and early intervention is essential for a positive prognosis. In two-thirds of children, according to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, symptoms resolve within three years.
