Parent Training

I really enjoy working with parents and teletherapy has opened that up considerably.  I can schedule parent meetings that offer mentoring for kids with anxiety and help parents reduce “accommodation” behaviors that often reinforce anxiety behaviors.  There is a lot of data that shows that working with parents without kids present can help improve the process of anxiety treatment for kids and families.  The roadblocks and hurdles I’ve run into is that both parents can’t come to the sessions because of time, travel, and other issues.  Teletherapy offers a great alternative to having to come to the office.  I am excited about this work.
