Dr. Zelener has extensive experience treating children, adolescents, and family problems. Young people
may struggle with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, as well as ADHD and other learning difficulties.

and chores, defiance, anger, and, in some instances, self-harm. Dr. Zelener also works with the special

Life and work stressors, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and PTSD often contribute to relationship
difficulties. Individual, couples and family counseling can help families return to peace and

with aging can also have improved outcomes with individual and family support.
Dr. Zelener is trained in empirically based treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy and
dialectical behavioral therapy, solution-focused strategies, token reinforcement, and anger
