About Me

Philosophy of Care

Dr. Anderson's patients are interested in evidence-based approaches to address problems and to reach goals. In some cases, there are questions regarding a specific diagnosis (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder). Patients choose to work with him so that they can have an experienced professional help them implement effective strategies. Parents who work with him are interested in learning additional approaches to help their child, whether addressing anxiety, mood, or disruptive behaviors. Dr. Anderson teams up with and collaborate with patients and their parents because when they work together, they can achieve meaningful change!
