Dr. Salyer's Care Philosophy

The problems we face as adults are often compounded by habits we bring with us that can interfere with our ability to look at and deal with circumstances objectively - and sometimes there are overwhelming challenges. Talking with a therapist can often identify and change what is holding us back. Over the years it has been my privilege to help people work through their problems and overcome or rise above them. Our culture tends to over-prescribe drugs for children with inattention, difficulty focusing, a high activity level, and behavior problems. I help parents of such children assist their children in developing self-control, respect, obedience, improved attention, higher achievement, positive social relationships and a healthy self-esteem - often without medication. Adolescents may have similar issues or may just need someone they feel comfortable talking with about their concerns.

Dr. Salyer says...

I have been working for many years with adults, adolescents, and children with a wide variety of problems, including anxiety, panic, anger, depression, relationship difficulties, parenting challenges, work/school related issues, inattention and behavioral problems. These experiences have helped me appreciate the variety of circumstances that can lead to problems that become overwhelming. Working together the patient and I identify the major issues and arrive and effective solutions.
