Child and Adolescent Therapy

Child and Adolescent Therapy

While employing a similar treatment approach to his adult patients, Dr. David Miller, Board Certified Boca Raton Psychologist and Psychoanalyst, believes that early intervention with children and adolescents is essential for preventing future problems. The professional relationship that is co-created between doctor and patient is vital.  It is important that the psychologist be professional, intelligent, well trained, trustworthy, compassionate and a positive role model who can guide your child through difficult life transitions.  This allows for maximal emotional growth and healing. Dr. Miller may utilize drawing techniques and role-playing to determine the cause of symptoms because young children sometimes have difficulty with self expression. Upon initial consultation, Dr. Miller meets with parent(s) for collaboration of a mutually agreeable course of treatment ensuring success. Additionally, parenting collaboration is a necessary component of treatment. Dr. Miller often consults with physicians, pediatricians and school counselors about his patients needs.
