Dr. Haessig treats social-emotional and school difficulties by working closely with parents to capacitate them to take over where she leaves off. She does not think children/teens should be in long-term therapy—often just a couple months is all that is needed to make positive shifts happen.
Beth’s interventions are experiential, problem-focused, and skill based as she views children’s issues as sourced in a lack of skills rather than pathology. Her work is highly experiential so her clients enjoy coming; they learn by knowing what “doing it right” feels like in their bodies…through practice and experience.
