Kimberly Harrison, PhD, Psychologist in Houston
I work with children, adolescents and adults on a variety of issues. Most of my work is based on the principles of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). My therapy plans are goal-oriented, with specific, measurable steps so that you can track progress. I will help you discover the "problem behind the problem" and then we'll work together to formulate solutions. I enjoy collaborating with my patients on many types of issues, but have quite a bit of extra training in working with children with ADHD and their parents, as well as with persons with Asperger's-type autism.
Children, adolescents and adults with ADHD and Asperger's-type autism are areas of focus for my practice. I have developed a unique system of identifying strengths and weaknesses related to ADHD/ASD brain functioning, and then creating a personalized plan to improve life (e.g., school, work, home, relationships).
My goal is to meet people where they are, look beyond surface symptoms to determine root issues, and then develop plans to move forward. The Adulting Program for young adults with ASD includes individual therapy, family meetings, and daily check-in to help with the transition to adulthood.
