She feels that creating a positive, healing, therapeutic relationship is essential in assisting clients to reach their desired goals. Although she tends to be directive in her approach, she adapts her strength-focused style to best meet the needs and goals of each client.
Dr. Hart enjoys working with children, families, and adult clients. Typical areas of focus have included child abuse/trauma, acting-out behaviors, non-compliance, inattention, hyperactivity, parenting, depression, anxiety, development and lifespan issues, and a wide variety of relationship difficulties.
Dr. Hart’s work history includes conducting individual, group, and family psychotherapy as well as mental health assessments. She has provided comprehensive psychological testing, primarily on children and adolescents, as well as more narrowly focused assessments.
