The form of therapy varies according to individual needs.   Depending upon presenting problem as well as client characteristics, therapy may occur within a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)  framework or include use of play-therapy techniques.  Often, especially when working with younger children, at least part of the session is spent working with parents to help generalize skills into the home setting.

In addition to working with children and adolescents, Dr. Tani also provides therapy (and assessment) services to young adults, including college students.

The initial session typically involves a diagnostic clinical interview to informally assess the client's needs, concerns, and goals.  Treatment recommendations are typically offered approaching the end of the session.


On average, evaluations are completed within two to four sessions, depending on the type of evaluation and the client's needs.  Within 3 weeks of the final evaluation session, Dr. Tani prepares a thorough evaluation report with data interpretation, diagnostic impressions and recommendations.  Types of evaluations include Academic and Cognitive/IQ to identify learning difficulties and learning strengths; Psychological Evaluations for diagnostic identification (e.g. Anxiety disorders, Depression disorders, Autism Spectrum disorders, ADHD).  Independent Educational Evaluations (IEE), second opinion evaluations regarding school-conducted assessments for educational programming purposes, are offered, as well.   


Concerns regarding a child or adolescent's developmental, behavioral, social, academic, or emotional functioning may be addressed through a solution-focused consultation framework to help determine a recommended course of action or to equip the family with psychoeducational information and/or strategies.  When a child is not developmentally ready for individual counseling, behavioral consultation may be recommended to assist with management of challenging behaviors . Behavioral consultation typically includes parent 'coaching' on positive behavior support strategies to address problematic behavior.
