Child Therapy (ages 4 and up)
Does your child need help learning to manage emotions, interact with peers, follow rules, or stay on task? Children develop new skills through exploration and play. Robin Brannan LCMFT combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with expressive techniques that enable children to learn and grow in the ways that come most naturally to them. Child Therapy involves periodic family sessions to support strong parent-child relationships and ongoing progress.
Relationships are central to our mental health. Healthy relationships strengthen and support us in times of stress. Relationship conflict can also be our greatest source of stress. As a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist, Robin Brannan has extensive training in helping families navigate conflicts and solve problems together. In family therapy, your family will work together to support each person’s growth and become the family you want to be.
Individual Therapy for Adolescents and Adults
Are you living the life you want? Meeting with a therapist can help you define and realize your goals, or help your adolescent develop self-awareness and make good choices in the turbulent teenage years. Robin Brannan LCMFT guides adolescents and adults in managing mental health conditions and strengthening relationships as they strive to become their best selves.
When children present new challenges every day, It’s easy to feel like we’re in over our heads. A parenting support session can help you rediscover your strengths, reconnect with your parenting partner(s), and add new tools to your parenting toolkit. Parenting support is an ongoing component of all child therapy, and can also be scheduled as a standalone service.
