    At Tesserae Family Therapy, we use evidence-based CBT techniques to help treat symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, ASD, and other emotional or behavioral concerns. For younger clients, we use behavioral strategies such as behavior modification to help correct negative patterns of behavior as well as teach developmentally appropriate coping skills to help manage difficult feelings. We find it crucial to work with parent(s) in therapy so we can work as a team to provide effective behavioral support.
