I am a licensed psychologist specializing in child and adolescent development and psychological well being. I aspire to help youngsters accept the ups and downs in life and make choices to lead healthier meaningful lives. While I subscribe to Cognitive-Behavior Treatment (CBT) approaches, including mindfulness based therapies Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, my overall treatment is guided by the developmental needs and/ or life transitions faced by the individual, their strengths, and presenting concern(s). Parents are collaborators in treatment where I emphasize positive effective and mindful parenting strategies in improving parent-child relationships.

My treatment style is directive yet supportive, educational and focused on imparting skills your child/you can use to resolve the current struggle or problem. Along with sound knowledge of underpinnings of human behavior, I bring warmth, compassion and positive regard to the collaborative relationship based on trust and confidentiality.

I have lived in two continents and five U.S. states earning my Doctorate in School Psychology at Texas A&M University in 1998 and training in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology at UBHC-UMDNJ, Newark, NJ and Forbush School, SPHS, Towson/Baltimore, MD. Prior, had private practice in Maine.
