Individual and Family Therapy


We provide evidence-based interventions that highlight the child’s strengths and teach skills to address their challenges. Depending on the needs of your family we provide a range of services, including individual therapy, parent coaching, and family-based counseling. We set realistic goals for your child to achieve, acknowledge their successes and continue toward new goals.  

Telehealth Services

The Sutcliffe Clinic offers Telehealth appointments to its clients through Google Meet.

Parent coaching offers parents the necessary skills to respond to emotional and behavioral challenges in order to help their child thrive. We teach parents to encourage and generalize their child’s learned skills to scaffold their growth. Family-based counseling is also evidence-based but adapted to each particular family to offer the best support specific to your family dynamic. We encourage check-ins and parent involvement to optimize progress.
