Audrey E. Boggs Dr.Boggs specializes in Selective mutism; social phobia; anxiety disorders; trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder; presentation and training for professionals; children, adolescents, young adults, and families.

Dr. Boggs’ Selective Mutism Anxiety Reduction Therapy (SMART) is designed to reduce anxiety by developing effective coping skills while using nonverbal interventions and gradual systematic desensitization. SMART utilizes nondirective play therapy, family psychoeducation/treatment, school-based cognitive-behavioral therapy, and comprehensive assessment. It is a multimodal treatment utilizing a combination of treatments that have been validated in the treatment of anxiety/selective mutism. Treatment is team based, involving the individual, family, school and community. Each child is given individualized treatment goals and progresses gradually, at their own pace with the understanding and support of their treatment team.
