Therapy for Children, Adolescents, and Families
Children and adolescents experience a variety of stressors that may bring them to therapy including: anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, difficulty controlling their anger, family stressors (e.g. death of a parent, divorce, etc.), behavioral challenges, and adjustment concerns. Dr. Gottlieb takes an individualized approach to working with each client in order to assess his/her needs and develop treatment goals that are discussed with the child and parents.
Dr. Gottlieb utilizes an integrative approach to therapy, tailoring cognitive-behavioral and family systems techniques to her work with children, adolescents, and their families, taking into consideration the child’s age and developmental stage as well as the family dynamics. She uses a strengths-based approach and views therapy as a collaborative process between the child, therapist, and family.
