About

I am a clinical psychologist and have been working clinically with children, adolescents and families for 14 years. I am passionate about my work with children and adolescents. I believe that childhood is both a wonderful and an extremely challenging time. Through play, talk and family therapy I help children and families reach their potential for happy, productive and successful lives.
I have experience with children who are facing a variety of challenges (school adjustment difficulties, divorce, death, adoption, anxiety, depression, selective mutism) and have specialized training and experience in working with young children ages 0 - 5 and children/adolescents/young adults with autistic spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.
I believe it is critical to work with families as a whole. Along with my child work I provide in depth parent support and guidance. Children do not grow up in a vacuum and my work with parents is as important to me as my individual work with children and adolescents.
