At Dr. Lisa Cheyette and Associates, we work with children, teens, and adults who are struggling with a variety of challenges. By developing a strong relationship with our clients, we are able to show you the possibility of living a happier, more fulfilled life. Our approach is designed to help you recognize your life goals while providing a clear path to achieving them.
We understand that the nature of each client’s concerns is different. To best investigate and reveal these issues, we use a combination of individual and family psychotherapy to help you get back on track. We also may suggest in-school or in-home consultations to determine the best course of treatment for your family. In addition, we may recommend a comprehensive psychological assessment or may work with you and the local school to make sure your child is receiving the assistance they need to be successful at school.
Children and Teens
In our work with children and teens, we use an individualized approach. Parents can often feel helpless when their child displays extreme behaviors such as intense anger, panic, excessive worries, and tantrums. Our approach teaches children and teens how to recognize and control their feelings in a variety of situations, helping them keep their cool and feel confident around family and friends. We engage you, the parents, in the therapy process, learning to modify some of your parenting patterns by identifying your own emotional triggers. Working together to identify new, more effective parenting skills, we can help you feel more empowered and capable of handling negative behavior.
With adults, our experience has found that challenges often arise from major life transitions. Common examples of these transitions include divorce, empty nesting, parenting a failure to launch young adult, remarriage, serious illness, or death of a loved one. Regardless of your situation, we are here to help you navigate these complex relationships.
There are times when a more intensive treatment approach is indicated. In her work as a Therapeutic Consultant, Dr. Cheyette works with families to help guide them towards the most appropriate therapeutic programs or schools.
