As a child and adolescent psychologist, I provide cognitive-behavioral, evidence-based interventions that are tailored to fit the individual needs of your child or family.
Life is hard enough for your teen – then you throw in puberty, a slow-growing prefrontal cortex, social media pressures, academic pressure, family conflict, peer conflict, maybe even a biological tendency to be more emotionally sensitive – and ta-da! The perfect Petri dish for anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues has been created. Or maybe your child hasn’t hit teenagehood yet, but they’re exhibiting problem behaviors and/or emotion dysregulation that you both could use some help managing. My goal is to help you and your child make sense of what's happening and together find ways to improve your quality of life.

My practice is focused on neuropsychological and educational assessment of children and adolescents. Evaluations are individualized for every child, but commonly test for learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and other mental health conditions (depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, etc.). Regardless of any diagnostic labels, assessments seek to illuminate your child’s strengths, identify areas of challenge, and provide specific, evidence-based recommendations to support their success in school and beyond.

When working with children/adolescents I consider developmental stage, cognitive ability, family and environment to better understand how therapeutic issues contribute to the child's struggles.
I provide psychotherapy for individuals (children, adolescents, and adults), couples and families. I help individuals who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety, mood, problems with relationships, and various addictions. I work from a client-centered perspective that is both integrative, collaborative, and recovery-based (i.e., incorporates client's strengths as opposed to solely focusing on negatives or pathology). As such, I am able to draw upon my expertise in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Couples and Family Therapy to flexibly design treatment to meet the specific needs of my clients.

Children tell stories about themselves through play: creating characters that are stories about themselves and their families.
When you are in emotional crisis, it is important to feel that someone is listening carefully to your often confusing, upsetting thoughts. I listen with curiosity that you can begin to experience about yourself. In understanding hidden and often inhibiting parts of yourself you are freer to be in charge of your life and reach your desired goals.

Do you find yourself asking “Should I be worried about this?” in regards with your child? Are you struggling to determine whether your child’s behavior is “normal”, a phase, or something that needs additional support? Is your adolescent’s inability to put his emotional experiences into words resulting in him communicating his inner turmoil through actions (i.e.,arguing, acting out, distancing from you, disengaging with academic responsibilities, etc.). I have a deep passion for working with youth and parents and have had the pleasure of working with children, adolescents, parents, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds and with various stressors since 2006.

We all make compromises as children to survive effectively in the families in which we grow up. Much of the work I do with people in therapy involves helping them realize the nature of those compromises and making a determination as to whether the choices they had to make as children continue to be the most effective course for them as adults. I help people have insight into their behavior in relationships at work, with friends and family so that they may decide what aspects of these interactions they want to keep and which they may want to modify.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Palo Alto, CA 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, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Palo Alto build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
