Dipl.-Psych. Sinje Ellsiepen
Cognitive Behavioral Therapist


Dear Families,

I am a clinical psychologist and cognitive behavioral therapist for children and youth up to the age of 21.

The basic idea of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is that disorder-related behavior has been learned and can be unlearned again. It is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that focuses on helping people to help themselves.

I offer therapy to those who suffer from various psychological conditions such as anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and obsessive compulsive disorders. Together we explore the origin of the problem, challenge dysfunctional thoughts and behaviors, and find new strategies to change defective patterns and promote well being. Typically, therapy will also include a parent counseling component to equip families with important knowledge about presenting disorders, as well as skills to help support positive outcomes.
