Sometimes the behaviors or symptoms that present can be confusing or confounded, particularly in children. As such, differential diagnosis, or simply figuring out the problem, is a key component in treatment. Please see below for some examples of different mental health diagnoses or problems as potential reasons for therapeutic intervention. Since there are many different possibilities, I am going to focus on the ones I typically see and have developed skill in treating over the years. However, the list is not exclusive, as I have worked with other diagnoses as well.
AREAS OF FOCUS:
MENTAL HEALTH DIAGNOSES IN ADULTS AND CHILDREN
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
High Functioning Autism Asperger’s Disorder
MENTAL HEALTH DIAGNOSES IN CHILDREN
Reactive Attachment Disorder
Separation Anxiety Disorder
Oppositional Defiant Disorder
Toilet training (Enuresis/Encopresis)
