Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Eberlin "I can help if you have a child with behavioral or emotional problems. I can also help you if you are an adult suffering with anxiety, depression, or problems with your relationships. Once we share an understanding of the problem/diagnosis, I use supportive evidence based cognitive behavioral therapy tailored to your expressed needs. With children, I always fully involve the parents in treatment. With couples, I provide effective communication communication training for relationship improvement."
