Dr. Parvonae Shaw extensively trained in Residential Treatment
Centers for adolescents. She was a therapist at the Texas Neuro Rehab, where she treated adolescents with a variety
of mental health issues. She also completed her APA approved Internship at Colorado State University, where she specialized
in ensuring that adolescents and young adults had the support they needed for academic and personal success. Additionally,
Dr. Shaw completed her Post-Doctoral Residency at Citrus Health Network, where she treated adolescents and their families in
a locked down facility.
Adolescence is a critical point of development.
If adolescents are not able to meet appropriate developmental milestones, this can dramatically decrease their chances for
success later in life. Dr. Shaw is skilled
at implementing behavioral and family therapy techniques to dramatically improve your adolescent’s quality of life.
Furthermore, since adolescents’ brains are still developing it is essential
that they have proper guidance and structure through the teenage years. Dr. Shaw can work with caregivers to ensure
that they are properly giving their adolescents the support they need.
Encouraging your out of control teenager to engage in outpatient
psychotherapy can prevent the need for an inpatient facility down the road, increase their chance for future success, and
improve family harmony.
