Consultation services are available for parents who need guidance or advice on how to handle various behavioral issues with their children. Some parents seek consultations regarding their child’s oppositional or defiant behavior; for support in addressing issues such as potty training, bereavement, and other life situations; guidance in talking to children about divorce, past traumas, sexualized behaviors; as well as various issues impacting a child’s schooling. Sessions generally last an hour to an hour and a half tand can be provided weekly or on an as needed basis. Consultations are a great option for parents who cannot commit to weekly sessions due to time or financial constraints, but are looking for some helpful insight or guidance.
Exposure Response Prevention (ERP)
Exposure Response therapy is considered the gold standard for addressing obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias and social anxiety. OCD is characterized by intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing that distress. ERP is a type of behavioral therapy that exposes people to situations that provoke their obsessions and the resulting distress while helping them prevent their compulsive responses. The ultimate goal of ERP is to free individuals from the cycle of obsessions and compulsions so they can ultimately live a more freeing lifestyle.
