Ms. Lindholm utilizes a variety of evidenced-based theoretical approaches which are individually tailored to best meet the client’s needs. Ms. Lindholm is thoroughly trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques and interventions for children to assist with reinforcing positive behaviors while identifying and addressing problematic behaviors and areas of concerns. Other theoretical approaches often used by Ms. Lindholm include psychodynamic theories to assist with increasing self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior; structural family theory to assist with strengthening the family system; and solution-focused therapy, which focuses on identifying solutions to problems rather then focusing on the problem itself. In conjunction with traditional therapeutic methods, Ms. Lindholm also encourages the use of Complementary health approaches, such as mind and body treatments (i.e.- meditation, exercise, yoga, etc.), to incorporate a holistic approach to treatment as applicable.
