Psychotherapy for adults is a collaborative and goal-oriented process and encourages work in between sessions with the psychotherapist. In cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), we look closely at the relationship between thoughts, behaviors, feelings and physiological states. These four aspects of the self are intricately related, and small changes in one area lead to changes in other areas. In particular, we attempt to increase positive behaviors and challenge irrational and unproductive thought patterns to create a greater sense of well-being.

Children and adolescents can face a range of difficult problems in their lives that might include sadness, anxiety, academic stress and family conflicts. They need to learn how to understand, control and share their emotions appropriately. They also may struggle to control their behavior and meet the expectations of their parents and teachers. Our licensed psychologists specialize in supportive therapy for children and adolescents to help them work through these issues and make better choices in their lives. A therapist can be a trusted mentor who helps children grow, mature and overcome obstacles. A therapist can provide emotional support in an honest, non-judgmental professional setting.

Whether a child is inattentive, anxious, sad or struggling to learn, parents may feel unsure of the best ways to help. Through psychological testing and educational support, we guide parents in a compassionate way to a better understanding of the issues and effective solutions. Since 2000, parents have put their trust in the licensed psychologists at The Pratt Center for psychological assessments of their children. We highlight areas of strength and talent while documenting any less developed skills. Our licensed psychologists are qualified to give diagnoses, including specific learning disabilities, attention issues (ADHD), depression, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities and other conditions.
