As a psychotherapist, I help people recover and grow, guided by each individual's psyche. I draw on the broad and deep resources of depth psychologies, the body-based, scientific wisdom of medicine and psychiatry, and the many artforms that humans instinctively have created for millennia. My practice includes adults, couples, children , adolescents and college students-people who come because they suffer from anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, relationship problems, medical illness, parenting challenges, crises in mid-life, and creative and professional blocks. Many come with curiosity about new directions that their lives could take.

I specialize in the mental wellness of children (Ages 5-17) and their families (parents/caregivers) who may benefit from mental health services via their own individualized treatment or additional support in areas such as coping, stress management, and parenting support. I view the family as a system-events such as divorce, death, incarceration, illness, etc., affect each member of the family in a unique way. Often, the focus of treatment is on the children due to acting out behaviors, or a decline in grades. But what about the caregivers? Parents often neglect their own mental health. My solution is comprehensive family care.

I am a more sensitive, empathic, and understanding child and adolescent psychiatrist (CAP) because I have ADHD and several different learning disabilities. When I was young, I constantly worried about being unable to stay in my seat or complete my assignments without making “silly” mistakes. As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, I’ve learned how to treat hyperactivity, but as an adult, I know what it’s like to be a hyperactive youngster. With that knowledge, I can ask kids “insider” questions that can only arise from shared experiences. My “insider” knowledge facilitates rapport, a core indicator of successful treatment.

Child Psychiatrists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
