Treatment for Mental Health Disorders

I have the knowledge and expertise to make accurate diagnosis taking into account different personality types. Tailoring treatment to the individual requires both empathy and expertise. Specific types of therapy techniques employed depend on various factors since some types of therapy are more useful for certain disorders than others, such as:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Depression, Trichotillomania, OCD, Selective Mutism, Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety, Phobias and other Anxiety disorders
  • Relaxation and Deep Breathing techniques for Panic Disorder
  • ADHD Coaching for parents as well as patients with ADHD to learn effective ways to manage symptoms and overcome common deficits that aren’t fully addressed with medication alone
  • Recovery from Addictions using Motivational Enhancement Therapy in combination with 12-step facilitation
  • Habit Reversal for Tourette’s Disorder
  • Team approach to treatment of Eating Disorders along with other specialists (dietitian, psychologists, Pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine) whom I partner with
  • Consultation regarding services available for patients with Autism and assistance for parents in managing problematic behaviors
  • Psychodynamic and Interpersonal Psychotherapy for relationship issues
  • Parent training for help with managing problematic behaviors of children when parents are either married or divorced
  • Couples Counseling for marital difficulties

  • Therapy for Spouses & Family Members of Addicts and Alcoholics
  • Assistance with managing End-of-Life Care for parents and other loved ones
