When there is a
persisent question or concern about an adolescent's happiness or
behavior that needs further understanding, therapy should be considered.
In many cases, an adolescent is referred to Dr. Hartman for her particular techniques,
style, or specialty areas:
- individual therapy
with adolescents (ages 13 - 19 years)
- free-form and
- specialty with females (although Dr. Hartman also helps males)
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques
- specialty with Parent Consultation and Parent-Child Therapy
- MaximizerU workshop for Juniors/Seniors THIS Summer 2013!
Common issues that Dr. Hartman treats are anxiety, phobias, OCD, depression, divorce, family stress, obedience/defiance, ADD, and adjustment.
Sometimes, Parent Consultation and Parent-Teen Therapy is a
useful treatment for improving an adolescent's problems and
facilitating healthy development. Common themes are family harmony, good habits, rewards/consequences, motivation, and rules.
