Dr. McLane enjoys working with children and adolescents who have social-emotional and/or behavior problems. Stress, anxiety, and depressed mood can affect many aspects of children’s and teenagers’ lives, making it difficult for them to cope, feel happy, and be self-disciplined. Research supports the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral approaches to therapy with children and teenagers. Therapy may include working with parents and/or teachers in how to help the student feel and behave better, have more rewarding relationships, and be more motivated.
Dr. McLane also conducts individual psychotherapy with adults to build coping resources for managing stress, anxiety, and depression and for reaching personal goals.
