Therapy Services

Since everyone’s situation is unique, in addition to individual treatment, Dr. Breytman offers adjunct therapy services. When clinically relevant, family sessions, parent training, school collaboration and home visits can be incorporated into the treatment. If needed, a highly specialized and individually focused intensive treatment program can also be created.

Individual Sessions are the core of treatment. The focus is on exploring one’s experiences and symptoms within a cognitive-behavioral framework. Treatment involves developing cognitive and behavioral skills that one can use throughout their lives. Treatment is scientifically informed, dynamic and highly effective. In addition to a strong emphasis on cognitive behavioral skills development, mindfulness based techniques and schema therapy strategies can also be incorporated.

Family Sessions

For many individuals, particularly children, their difficulties and symptoms evolve in the context of their families. Consequently, family sessions can be an integral and productive approach to certain issues.

Parent Training

Parents often struggle with questions about the best approach for handling their child’s difficulties. Parent training is often an essential part of treatment. It can provide parents with an opportunity to develop highly effective parenting skills and tools for managing their child’s specific symptoms, such as anxiety and depression. At times, parents can also be trained as coaches to assist their children in implementing therapeutic tools between sessions. This can enhance and expedite treatment.

School Consultation

For many children the school environment can be a very overwhelming place with many academic and social demands. Often symptoms are at their worst in this challenging setting. Collaborating with school personnel is a crucial part of working with children. It can facilitate treatment by coordinating care and providing continuity of care and strategies across settings.

Home Visits

Home visits offer some individuals the opportunity to work on specific problem areas in their own environment. For some, getting to a doctor’s office is a very challenging goal. For others, symptoms are more prevalent at home therefore home based treatment is more productive than office visits.

Intensive Treatment Programs

Although traditional treatment is provided once a week, for some individuals an intensive treatment program is best because of symptom interference or the need to make progress quickly. Sessions can be scheduled several times per week for an extended duration. All treatment coordination is guided by the unique needs of the individual.

Supervision & Consultation

Dr. Breytman has extensive training and clinical experience in various CBT methodologies. Consequently, she is an important resource for clinicians who are new to the field, are working on developing clinical expertise or simply need additional guidance with a challenging case.
