I work with a team of psychologists, testing specialists and a psychiatrist who treat children and adults with issues ranging from anxiety to dealing with changes in life (e.g. divorce, moving, loss). I see my role as a change agent to help clients have insight as to why they are suffering and what tools will help them become more self actualized. I have a casual and playful style when working with youth, so they don't realize they are in therapy. My goal is to disarm kids so they feel comfortable to share things.

Welcome to my "family practice." Finding a therapist that you feel comfortable talking with is crucial to the success of your work with that therapist. My work with an individual, whether child or adult, as well as with a family, begins with us developing a conversational style and working relationship together that will foster growth and learning. Together in this environment, we can work towards those goals we have set out, or simply take the opportunity to express feelings and thoughts in a safe, confidential environment.

Our lives have been turned upside down, as a nation and as human beings. It is not only the fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus, the fear that someone we care about may succumb to the virus, but also our financial stability and the upheaval to our lives, what we considered normal has been suddenly torn asunder. As a species, humans are highly adaptable. And, we will adapt to this too. Please reach out for help during these very trying times. It's better to act sooner than to wait if you feel your mental health is taking a toll.

I provide therapy to children , adolescents and adults, in an integrated and culturally sensitive fashion, utilizing a combination of strategies gathered from various psychological orientations, combined with teachings of Eastern schools of thought.
Buddha's quote "The mind is everything. What you think you become", has always been at the center of my beliefs, both personally and professionally. Therefore, I view therapy as a tool that enables us to transcend beyond our previously adopted and perhaps less effective ways of coping with life's challenges, and begin to relearn new ways of dealing with challenges as they arise. This will in turn open up many new windows to self-awareness, ultimately bringing about personal growth and satisfaction both internally and within the context of our relationships, allowing us to live happier more fulfilled lives.

If only you could just tell your kids what to do and watch them feel better! It seldom works out that way, though. To help a child , you have to "speak the language of youth" and find ways to help that aren't lectures or punishments. My office is half consulting room and half art studio. Your child is invited to express their emotions in whatever way suits them--colors, brushes, toys and, yes, a couch. I help kids and teens find their own answers and begin growing into the people they were meant to be.

I am a bilingual clinical neuropsychologist with extensive experience working with infants, children , adults, couples, and families. In addition to neuropsychological evaluations, I provide therapeutic interventions and have been trained in medical hypnosis, which is great for pain management. In treatment, I do not generally espouse one particular theoretical orientation, but instead I evaluate my patients from the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model. I believe that a person is a product of their environment, thus making it important to address a presenting issue on multiple levels in order to facilitate healthy adjustment and function within the existing milieu.

I'm a certified practitioner of Child -Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Family Overcoming Under Stress (FOCUS).
As a parent/caregiver, a certain level of stress is normal, however when your stress level becomes unmanageable, it is time to seek professional support. I help infants and their parents; individuals and their families repair the effects of trauma and stress in their lives. I believe the earlier we address emotional, developmental, relational, social and individual (behavior) functioning, the better we can assist the family or individual to make life-long changes.

As a play therapist, I offer children an opportunity to gain mastery of their dilemmas through the manipulation of art materials, toys and sand tray figurines.
I have practiced psychotherapy for thirty years. As clients share their life struggles, I offer support, respect, and practical information on coping strategies. Together, we explore such issues as patterns of attachment and relating, internal self talk, cognitive structures, unresolved traumas and one's personal life narrative. I individualize my approach and use a variety of modalities to help clients develop strengths and achieve their life goals. When working with couples, I facilitate development of healthy communication techniques, conflict resolution skills, and awareness of defenses. I promote attunement to emotional needs so couples can experience intimacy and growth.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
