Laura Van Schaick-Harman, PsyD, Psychologist in Patchogue
I work with children, adolescents, and adults. I love helping people set and reach short and long term goals, experience happiness, and effectively manage and accept negative emotions. I really enjoy helping people to identify, accept, and overcome anxiety. While we all experience anxiety during our lives, it is important to learn the difference between real and imagined dangers, to be able to approach new experiences even if we are scared, and to live a life free from the damaging and smothering aspects of anxiety related disorders.
Treatment is available for anxiety disorders, compulsive behavior, ADHD, learning disabilities, stress, behavior problems, parenting concerns, trichotillomania (hair pulling), and Tourette's/Tic Disorder. Interventions include Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Comprehensive Behavior Intervention for Tics, and Positive Psychology techniques.
I offer online therapy services- secure video sessions, e-mail, chat, or phone sessions. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety (panic attacks, panic disorder, social phobia, specific phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, agoraphobia, specific phobia, selective mutism, separation anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder) and college students.
