therapy

We provide individual therapy, group therapy, family and couples therapy, and parent coaching. Our therapists are specialists who work with children, adolescents, and adults.

Our treatment approach emphasizes and builds on strengths and skills. Our therapies are goal-oriented, solution-focused, and brief. We specialize in evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness/MBSR, acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), and social skills coaching.

Through play, interactive exercises and psycho-education — we build resilience, emotion regulation, empathy, assertive communication, coping tools, distress tolerance, and friendship/relationship skills. With parents, we help to refine parenting practices and family harmony with tailored interventions informed by empirically-supported parenting programs.

Our therapists and experts help clients improve and manage stress and anxiety, anger, interpersonal communication, social challenges, emotion regulation, assertiveness, school functioning, and have fulfilling friendships and relationships.

We appreciate neurodiversity. We support our clients through developmental life challenges including grief, loss, separation, and divorce. We specialize in working with multicultural and adoptive families.

We offer group therapy or Therapy Dyads and Triads which are particularly helpful for participants who are motivated to practice their social emotional skills with compatible same-aged peers. Play, social interaction and friendship and relationship building skills are taught and rehearsed with a peer and therapist in a more naturalistic context.

Our Parent Coaching series encourages social-emotional, adaptive and cognitive development for the child and family. We help parents support their children by reinforcing strengths and prosocial behavior and manage maladaptive behaviors.

We specialize in working with clients presenting with mild to moderate challenges and/or exceptional needs. Our sessions are brief, tailored and semi-structured. We work closely with partners, co-parents and single parents.

Adult Therapy is available to college students and parents who are dealing with anxiety, anger, life stressors and relationship difficulties. We provide evidence-based therapies including CBT, DBTself compassion, and mindfulness.

Participating in a Social Emotional Class at Seesaw is beneficial for building empathy, emotion regulation, self awareness, and social problem solving skills in a small group setting and to complement therapy or consultation. Playing and learning with peers creates a natural setting to practice and generalize skills.
