My practice consists of children ages 3-18 who display emotional and/or behavioral symptoms. The majority of my patient population include children suffering from Anxiety (which can involve Separation Anxiety, Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Depression and other mood-related issues, low self-esteem, Attachment Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity-Disorder and behavioral disturbances. Many of the children I work with come in to address socialization issues, either through 1:1 therapy or through my Social Skills Group for Kids. I specialize in diagnostic evaluations and treatment for pediatric populations.
I use a supportive and individualized approach to treating my patients, while implementing Cognitive-Behavioral methods, in order to teach adaptive coping skills. I work with families collaboratively to develop behavior-modification programs when needed, to provide structure in the home. I offer positive parenting techniques to reinforce pro-social behaviors.
A unique feature is my socialization groups for boys and girls. The group creates a friendly environment, while teaching social skills for those who lack "cues", and display impulsive or withdrawn behaviors. I use a combination of talk, Cognitive-Behavioral, and play therapy, in order to build healthy, social skills.

Carolyn Grosso's Groups

Social Skills Group for Boys and Girls

The Social Skills Group for Boys and Girls is a supportive group for kids ages 5-8, 9-10, and 11-13. The structure encompasses a didactic approach to teaching socialization strategies, as well as role-playing scenarios which are typically occurring in most social settings, and a home practice portion. The children not only learn pro-social strategies in the group but are encouraged to practice their newly learned skills in different settings to promote success. As children use these tools with peers, they strengthen relationships thus improving overall self-esteem.
