I began specializing in family, children, and adolescent therapy ten years ago.
People ask me, "When is it time to see a therapist?" I don't know anyone who can say everything in their lives is going well all the time. We all have challenges from time to time, but you don't have to go through them alone. I'm here to help you use your strengths to keep what is going right, and help you find your strengths to fix when things are going wrong. I specialize in working with children, teens, young adults, and families. I bring warmth, empathy, and a touch of playfulness and creativity to my work.

Is your child’s worry causing you to worry? Could your teen's “acting out” or behavioral issues be caused by anxiety, depression, or some underlying issue that you may not be aware of? Many children and teens struggle to manage symptoms on a daily basis. This often results in poor school performance, issues with peer relationships, family discord, and other behavioral concerns. If you’re at a loss or feeling frustrated, therapy can be a helpful way to gain an understanding of why a child may be struggling. You and your child can then learn various ways to cope with stressors. Call me for a free initial phone consultation.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in 08753 provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in 08753 build great relationships with the child and the parent.
