Do you stay up at night worrying about your child? Have you tried everything you can think of to make things better? Are you thinking that it might be time to get some professional advice from an expert in child development and child behavior? My warm and playful interpersonal style goes a long way in developing a trusting relationship and in assisting your child in making positive changes. I am a PhD licensed psychologist with 23 years of experience at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. I specialize in treating children, adolescents and young adults with depression, anxiety, ADHD, and emotional regulation problems.
I instill hope that things can get better and guide my patients in changing thoughts and behaviors that are counterproductive. I use research informed interventions, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), to help reduce stress, to help decrease maladaptive behavior, to help improve mood and to help increase self-esteem.
I want to help create positive changes for you and your child. Please call to discuss your concerns and get things started.
