Are you concerned about your child 's wellbeing? As a licensed psychologist with over 15 years of clinical experience, I specialize in treating children /adolescents who present with anxiety, depression, and disruptive behaviors that impact their functioning in home, school, and social settings. I enjoy working with children and their parents helping children learn how to regulate and tolerate feelings (anger, frustration, sadness, and anxiety), manage challenging/disruptive/impulsive behaviors, and acquire adaptive, positive coping skills. I assist parents in learning how to regulate their own feelings and be aware of their behaviors so they can help their child .

But it doesn’t have to be this way! Your child can break out of these negative patterns and develop the tools they need for successful relationships, careers, and other endeavors.
It’s so painful to see your adolescent in distress. You want to help, but they can be resistant to your ideas, and it feels like they’re withdrawing more every day. You worry that their anxiety, difficulty managing responsibilities, or poor self esteem will prevent them from living up to their potential. It can feel like you’ve tried everything or don’t know where to start, and your concerns about them feel increasingly overwhelming.
