We understand the importance of treatments for conduct disorders. We can help to decrease or eliminate many identified problem behaviors in the short-term, while at the same time, working towards the long-term goal of preventing children’s behavioral patterns from worsening. Our methods include positive reinforcement to increase appropriate behaviors and eliminating damaging behaviors. Our goal is to help parents learn how to help modify their children’s behavior, while providing a positive learning environment. To ensure success, close coordination between therapist and parents is pivotal. The consistent reinforcement of treatment by parents/caregivers during everyday family situations is crucial to continuous improvement.
Behavior therapy for children with conduct disorders is based on science-based learning theory. Behavior patterns are often learned behaviors, and inappropriate behaviors can be unlearned.
Eating & Body Image Disorders
Eating and body image disorders have become a major problem in the US, and many other countries, in recent years. Millions of women —and men—suffer from binge eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, and a host of other maladies that impact their lives daily. In extreme cases, they can lead to loss of life. Eating disorders involve extreme attitudes, behaviors, and emotional distress about food and body weight. Intervention can help.
Weight Balance & Nutrition Counseling
Do you struggle with keeping your weight in balance? Have you tried everything, and just can’t lose (or gain) the weight? Weight Balance counseling may be just what you need. There is much education currently available on many areas of weight loss, somehow, nutrition and its role in balancing one’s weight is often neglected.
Weight Balance Counseling includes basic nutritional counseling in addition to mental health counseling. Mental health issues, such as stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, and other mental challenges often underlie binge eating and emotional overeating.
Our comprehensive approach focuses on underlying emotions, changing thought patterns, and help you reach your full potential by creating new behavior patterns to create weight balance and optimal health.
