Children's developing brains and the many supports naturally built into their lives (parents, siblings, teachers, etc.) make them perfect candidates for intervention when they are experiencing difficulty. If you are concerned about your child, as a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist, I can identify strengths and needs and develop a plan for intervention that addresses multiple influences within your child's life, including home and school. I am most adept at working with children with developmental delays/disorders, anxiety, learning difficulties, behavioral issues, and executive functioning deficits (such as attention difficulties).

I am psychoanalytically trained, and also use cognitive/behavioral approaches where appropriate.
I believe that many difficulties are related to our unconscious thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and the unhealthy defenses that we erect, usually in childhood, to protect ourselves against hurt. Once helpful, but now outdated, these defenses prevent self-awareness and the constructive resolution of our problems. These blocks to awareness can contribute to symptoms such as low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, interpersonal problems, addictive behaviors, etc. I can assist you in developing healthier coping skills, i.e, to identify your defenses, explore your underlying feelings, and rediscover your authentic self.
