Family Therapy

I highly recommend that all of my child and adolescent clients participate in concurrent family therapy while in treatment with me, and I am able to provide referrals to trusted providers in the area. I also offer family counseling & support person sessions as needed on a limit basis. When navigating the complex issues presented by eating disorders or other mental health conditions, children and adolescents benefit from family engagement in order to support a sustainable recovery. I aim to empower family members by providing psychoeducation on your loved one's condition, as well as teaching practical tools to help you offer emotional support and reinforce positive behavior change. Because of the essential role of family involvement, I almost always require family therapy services as a condition of continued work with your child—in which case I will supply a referral list for family therapy providers.
