Dr. Wall has extensive experience working with children and adolescents. She worked 11 years as a NYS Certified School Social Worker where she provided individual/group therapy for 1000+ students over the course of her tenure.
There are a variety of therapeutic approaches she uses that are incorporated in the work with this specialized population to include but not limited to Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, EMDR, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, SandTtray Therapy, Lego-Based Therapy, Biblio-therapy and Psycho-Drama.
Working with children/adolescents is NOT the same as working with adults and calls for a skill-set beyond that which targets adults. All of our young clients are seen as an individual, not a "one size fits all." This perspective allows us to develop a plan specific for their needs and when one approach may not be a good fit, because Dr. Wall has several therapeutic tools in her tool belt, she is able to shift with ease to another tool.
We are happy to announce our 12-Week Skills Academy that begins January 13, 2024 and will be offered on Saturdays for our younger clients ages 3 years to 14 years. Families can choose in-person or tele-health services. There is a Parent Behavior Management component and parents are required to attend 4 sessions over the course of the 12 weeks. Space is limited and expected to fill. If you are interested contact the office today through our Contact Page on our website. We accept insurance and that can be found on the Insurance tab on our website, otherwise private pay fee is also posted there.
To get started: Send a message of interest through our Contact Page AFTER you have confirmed your insurance is accepted and/or you have confirmed the private pay fee on our website. A Pre-screening is then conducted and an Initial Intake is scheduled No later than December 15, 2023.
