Sessions will begin with an Intake appointment to gather background information and history, as well as current symptoms. In individual treatment we work directly with your child AND with you to develop a treatment plan to best target symptoms and behaviors. At Pediatric Behavioral Therapies by Dr. S, ALL child and adolescent cases will require regular parent involvement and participation, in addition to one-on-one time with your child. Parents will be aware of what children are learning in sessions and are expected to support the child in implementing skills outside of session. Often times, parents will also learn specific parenting skills to better support their child.

Parent Training
in Behavior Management

In certain cases, it may be recommended to focus only on parenting skills and support. Many children with difficult behaviors, including tantrums, aggression, emotional/behavioral meltdowns, impulsivity, and reactivity require a specialized parenting approach. At Pediatric Behavioral Therapies, we take a behavioral approach utilizing empirically supported treatment to teach parents the most effective approach to parenting.


At Pediatric Behavioral Therapies by Dr. S, we are happy to be able to provide telehealth options for treatment. We are utilize ZOOM as a HIPAA compliant telehealth platform to make behavioral health care even more accessible to our families. For some cases, telehealth is a great option, but for others in-office sessions are more appropriate. At your intake, we can discuss whether or not telehealth appointments would be a good option for your child’s treatment. Under PsyPact Dr. S is able to offer teletherapy to patients in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.


When available, we can provide one-time consultations for diagnostic clarification or second opinions. This will not necessarily result in the ability to begin individual therapy, but will provide families with diagnostic clarification and treatment recommendations. This could be a good option if you already have a treatment provider, but are looking to rule in or rule out a particular diagnosis or get a better understanding of the gold standard treatment recommendations. This could also be a good option if you are unsure where to start for your child’s behavioral health care needs. This is NOT neuropsychological testing or psychoeducational testing. Give us a call if you think this may be a good fit for you.
