My group practice specializes in evaluating and working with children with childhood anxiety disorders and their parents.
Clinical Psychologist in Phoenix, AZ
I specialize in treating childhood anxiety disorders , using individual therapy, CBT, ERP, mindfulness , running social skills groups, and doing parent training and education specific to anxiety, selective mutism, and social anxiety. We also run an intensive camp to help socially anxious children and tweens get a jumpstart on the school year. I am well versed in helping children and parents with childhood anxiety at home and also helping them navigate educational resources and accommodations.
Social anxiety has a large overlap with my specialty area of treating selective mutism.
I am trained in C-BIT and enjoy helping people of all ages with tic disorders and Tourette Syndrome. I am also well versed in the triad of OCD, TS and ADHD in both treating it from a clinical perspective and helping parents navigate school accommodations and resources.
Coupled with CBT, Exposure Response Prevention is a gold standard for treating OCD and phobias. We use a gradual and systematic approach that helps the client feel confident and successful.
One of the gold standard treatment modalities for anxiety, we use many tenants of CBT and psychoeducation to help our clients and families with anxiety.
Mindfulness strategies are used in conjunction with other therapeutic approaches and are specifically helpful with handling overwhelming emotions and stress as well as helping with impulse control difficulties with children and teens.
