Psychodynamic therapy is the best therapy for lasting change. In fact, a study by (Leichsenring et al., 2004, p. 1213), showed that people treated with psychodynamic therapy were “better off with regard to their target problems than 92% of the patients before therapy”.
With over two decades of experience working with adolescents, I have developed a specialized treatment approach to help your teenager. Teenagers are a challenging population to treat and usually they do not want therapy. My approach involves parents in the process while maintaining trust and solid boundaries with your teenager.
Depression is serious, but if you seek professional help, your chances for recovery are very good. With the help of a good therapist, people suffering from depression improve their lives. The success rate for treatment is about 80%. It is important to find a good therapist who uses the right approach that will work for you. My approach focuses on getting to the source (underlying cause) of your depression rather than just treating the symptoms. This leads to permanent change and recovery.
I use advanced computer software that accurately measures attention through a computer game. Images are flashed on the screen and a clicker is used to measure your responses. Results can’t be faked and the test is able to accurately identify if you have ADHD or not. To learn more about computerized ADHD testing or to schedule a formal evaluation, call my office at (904) 615-8643. I will be happy to discuss the testing process with you. My testing fee is very reasonable.
