What Dr. Harris would like you to know about her:
I enjoy working with children as young as 6 to young adults, as well as their parents, and provide a number of treatments proven to help people facing challenges with anxiety or OCD, including Exposure and Response Prevention, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions), and exposure-based therapies more generally. Overcoming fears or worry can feel immensely challenging AND rewarding - I help my clients do so with warmth, playfulness, enthusiasm, openness, and humor. I bring the same qualities to my work coaching parents in the most effective ways to support their children in overcoming anxiety or OCD. Additionally, I welcome clients of all identities and approach the LGBTQ+ youth I am lucky to work with from an affirming stance. Exploring and understanding those identities that are important to us can greatly contribute to our happiness, and I provide guidance and support to families around doing so.
