What to Expect from Treatment

Dr. Avy Stock is a licensed clinical psychologist dedicated to providing evidence based mental healthcare for adolescents and adults.

Therapy session

Dr. Stock is trained in a variety of treatment approaches that aim to encourage a different way of thinking and reacting to uncomfortable emotions. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is supported by research to treat many psychiatric conditions, including:

  • GAD
  • OCD
  • Phobias
  • Depression
  • Emotional and Behavioral Dysregulation
  • Interpersonal Difficulties
  • Chronic Stress
  • PTSD

Through individual and family therapy, as well as parent consultation, Dr. Stock fosters a warm and engaging environment where patients feel at ease.

Parent & Family Involvement

Parent & Family Involvement

Parent and family involvement in treatment can range from periodic check-ins to review treatment plans to regular family therapy with goals of improved communication, relationship building, and general parenting skills. Although confidentiality between the client and therapist is of the utmost importance, family support throughout therapy contributes to improved well-being overall.

Oftentimes, a young client’s anxiety-driven avoidance is so intense that any behavioral change seems terrifying and even impossible. In these situations, Dr. Stock often works exclusively with parents to support them in their efforts to deal with their own anxiety around their child’s current situation. Treatments such as SPACE are often more effective than child therapy alone.
