Having a child who is struggling academically, emotionally or socially can be disheartening. We all want the best for our children. Finding the right psychologist to evaluate your child is crucial. I understand a parent's desire to find a warm and caring clinician who can not only help their child feel safe but who can also provide a comprehensive understanding of your child's strengths and weaknesses. I have over 15 years of experience providing therapy and assessment services to children and adolescents. I work closely with both parent and child to help clarify stumbling blocks to success.

Typical areas of focus for psychological and psycho-educational assessments are learning disabilities, processing deficits, ADHD, disruptive behavior, developmental disorders, anxiety, depression, and post traumatic stress disorder. With your help I will develop a personalized battery of assessments unique to the needs of your child.

If you have a teen that likes music and needs to develop coping skills, Acoustic Youth might be the answer. This innovative therapy approach involves music, mentorship and song writing/recording.

Brette Genzel-Derman's Groups

Acoustic Youth

Acoustic Youth is a fourteen-week group therapy modality that combines music and mentoring, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness to empower teens. Each group member is encouraged to write and record a song about something in their life they would like to gain mastery over. The group's mission is for teenagers to develop resiliency through a fun and creative process. Group members find their inner voice through a variety of musical exercises and group discussions, all of which culminate in an empowering and healing experience. Www.Acousticyouth.com
