Paradox was founded in 2014 by Susan M. Gehrig, Ph.D. and Patrick J. Savaiano, Psy.D. to promote the wellbeing of San Diego families through a holistic perspective on child therapy and child counseling. We strive to encourage positivity, mindfulness, and health in children and teens.
Our office is located in Carlsbad, CA where our psychologists offer Child and Teen Therapy and Psychoeducational Testing. Additionally, our behavioral specialist will come to you to provide Parenting Support and Behavioral Consultation in your home, school, or other community setting to compliment child therapy services.
We specialize in working with children and teens who may be struggling with academic needs (e.g., learning disability), attentional challenges (i.e., ADHD), developmental diagnoses (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder), anxiety, depression, and behavioral challenges. Our behavioral therapist also supports children in potty training and who may struggle with tantrum behaviors, social skills, and school readiness. We work with an educational specialist to provide Gifted and Gate support as well. We invite you to learn more About Us and Our Services.
