Kathleen C. Fort, LiCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Washington
Are you or your child having trouble at school/ work, with relationships, or adjusting to a new or challenging situation? I can help. Perhaps a little extra support and processing of new coping skills is needed, or maybe there is a deeper problem - emotional, psychological, or ,medical - that calls for a specialized approach. I will develop an individualized program that coordinates a variety of assessment, treatment and intervention strategies specific to you or your child's and family's unique needs. I have over 15 years experience providing counseling for children and adults. Let's work together for a new beginning for you.
I offer age- and ability-appropriate social skills therapy groups for children, adolescents, and young adults to help participants learn appropriate social behaviors. Issues covered include conversation skills, listening, sharing, problem solving, self control, dealing with emotions and bullies, and making friends. Groups also include parent training sessions and coordination with parents.
