Dr. Avirett utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy and brief solution focused strategies to address issues such as: depression, anxiety, behavioral management, or social skills. Cognitive rehabilitation may be useful for children or adolescents who have demonstrated a weakness in one or more cognitive area, such as memory, attention, or processing speed. Therapy sessions are 45-50 minutes in length. They are often split into three sections: direct time with the child, direct time with the parent, and combined time with the child and parents to review skills.
In family therapy, parents, children, and Dr. Avirett all meet together to discuss current problems or concerns within the family structure. Healthy and adaptive communication strategies are utilized to improve the relationships between family members. Therapy sessions are 45-50 minutes in length.
