PEDIATRIC CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST
What to Expect
Treatment with Dr. Neely starts with a unique 5 session assessment process, that leads to a written Whole Child Assessment Report. Dr. Neely has developed this thorough assessment process to create a strong foundation to treatment, making the work as effective and efficient as possible.
In the first phone call, Dr. Neely will ask you a little bit about your concerns and what is going on. She will be trying to determine if she has the appropriate expertise in the area of need.
During treatment Dr. Neely works collaboratively with parents to design a plan that fits well with the family's needs and values. Therapy typically includes a combination of the following:
Parent Support and Coaching
(using principles from traditional models as well as Greenspan's Floortime / D.I.R. model)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Targeted Child Centered Training:
Relaxation, Anger Management, Coping Skills, Social Skills, Anxiety Management
Solution Focused Homework Assignments
Picture Schedules and other Visual Aids
Social Thinking Curriculum
Collaboration with other treatment providers
Use of the Patient Portal
for homework reminders, online journal, and confidential email
