When there is a
persistent question or concern about the child's happiness or
behavior that needs further understanding, therapy should be considered.
In many cases, a
child is referred to Dr. Hartman for her particular techniques,
style, or specialty areas:
- individual therapy
with children as young as 8 years
- free-form and
structured Play/Art Therapy
- specialty with
girls (although she also helps boys)
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques
- specialty with Parent Consultation and Parent-Child Therapy
Common issues Dr. Hartman treats are anxiety, phobias, OCD, depression, divorce, family stress, obedience/defiance, ADHD, and adjustment.
Sometimes, Parent Consultation or Parent-Child Psychotherapy is a
useful way to improve a child's problems and facilitate
healthy child development. Common themes are family harmony, good habits, rewards/consequences, motivation, and rules.
Contact Dr. Hartman to discuss ways she may be able to help you/your child.
