Sean enjoys providing therapy to youth and adults with co-occurring mental health and pervasive developmental disorders (Autism). Sean also is trained to work with PTSD patients from a sensorimotor approach. He is also a member of the National Association of Dual Diagnosis.
When Sean is not working he enjoys; raising his two sons, rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking and competing in triathlons. One of his favorite regional spots to kayak is the Boundary Waters.
a. Patients seeking an Autism Diagnosis should be prepared for a semi-structured interview process that takes 3 sessions. The outcome of the assessment will determine if you need additional testing, have a clear case of autism, or do not have autism but rather a similar mental health condition that appears like autism symptomology
b. Those seeking therapy for their children should expect to be involved in treatment. Family is an essential ingredient to psychotherapy success.
c. I frequently support parents with psychotherapy groups. Consider asking our PSR today if you feel that you might fit this category.
d. I'm always excited to learn from you about your life, you are the expert on it, not me.
