Welcome! I am an advocate for the emotional-physical well being of children-adults! What we are all going through now is very hard! Life has changed! Our children need extra support. Our priority is our children’s mental health. Please reach out to me. As a child and family psychotherapist, I can help your kids feel better. I incorporate play-talk therapy & feelings games: My feelings books-songs also help kids feelings. 1) Online feelings groups of 3-4 kids who are friends 2) Sessions for Parents-Kids all ages to help with the hard feelings 3) Online Groups of teens. 4) Feelings Groups in the classroom 5) Individual child sessions.
Parents have reported that playing online feelings games, and talking/drawing feelings is helping to improve their child/teen/families reactions to the trauma of isolation, illness and life in general. The kids have said they’re having a great time and they feel so much better. They enjoy doing the feeling town maps on my website and reading my books.
Now that the weather is nice and the quarantine is slowly beginning to lift, please inquire about my socially distanced “feelings and moving classes” for the summer; three or four children at a time, in riverside park near 79th street. I am a holistic eclectic psychotherapist for over 25 years, who attended Columbia Graduate School and worked at NYH Cornell.
