Do you work with children?
Dr. Sala works with children ages 8 and older, as well as adolescents. About half of Drs. Sala's practice consists of children and adolescents. Dr. Roos and Andrew Gottlieb-Cohen work with adolescents.
What kind of issues do you help children and adolescents with?
We have specialized training in working with children/adolescents with body image issues, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and difficulties with peers.
What type of treatment do you do with children?
We seek the best evidence-based treatment for the challenges that your child may experience. Dr. Sala often uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) protocols adapted for children, as these protocols are often the best treatments for children.
Do you involve parents in treatment?
We involve parents in treatment as much as possible when working with children. We encourage parents to meet with the therapist regularly, and we will give you strategies on how to best help your child. Research suggests that this is the best approach for treating children. Less family involvement is typically needed for the treatment of adolescents.
What kind of training do you have in working with children and adolescents?
Andrew Gottlieb-Cohen has worked with several adolescents at the Yale Child Study Center. About half of Dr. Sala's patients are children and adolescents, and she has attended several trainings focused on treating children and/or adolescents.
