Dr. Carolyn Grosso
To contact me directly:
My practice consists of children ages 3-18 who display emotional and/or behavioral symptoms. The majority of my patient population include children suffering from Anxiety (which can involve Separation Anxiety, Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Depression and other mood-related issues, low self-esteem, Attachment Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity-Disorder and behavioral disturbances. Many of the children I work with come in to address socialization issues, either through 1:1 therapy or through my Social Skills Group for Kids. I specialize in diagnostic evaluations and treatment for pediatric populations.
I use a supportive and individualized approach to treating my patients, while implementing Cognitive-Behavioral methods, in order to teach adaptive coping skills. I work with families collaboratively to develop behavior-modification programs when needed, to provide structure in the home. I offer positive parenting techniques to reinforce pro-social behaviors.
