I am a licensed mental health counselor, a clinician & an expressive arts therapist with over 15 years of experience in supporting children, young adults and families with diverse needs.
We all face challenges and could use extra support at times. I offer a safe non-judgmental place, where you can let go of your daily stress and focus on your needs through creative expression. Art therapy integrates psychotherapy (talk therapy) with the creative process to improve and enhance mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. No prior artistic experience is needed to benefit from the healing power of expressive art. Art is a universal language of the mind that speaks through images & symbols and allows verbal and beyond-words communication.

I welcome the opportunity to demystify concerns with learning, behavior, or adaptation in children of all ages and in young adults who may have longstanding difficulties. I use a battery of standardized tests in addition to interview and observation to help understand what underlies struggles, and what to do about it. A child may have anxiety and learning difficulties: what should you focus on first? A teen or young adult may have had a concussion, and problems with mood or attention which predate injury. How do we go about planning interventions which will work?

I help children,adolescents, and young adults build supports in school or college.
Counseling can be a vehicle for emotional growth, personal development, and the personalization of coping strategies. This might mean creating healthier thought and behavioral patterns. It might mean finding better ways of managing emotional states, school life, college life, work-life balance, entrepreneurial endeavors, or relationships. Counseling can help you discover and rediscover what holds value and meaning in your life. There is always a different path forward, but finding the path to positive growth and development isn't easy. Reaching out for support is always courageous, and an important step toward that path.

I teach courses to clinical fellows on child and adolescent community-based therapy with urban youth.
Entering therapy is courageous. It can be a transformational space, a bridge from suffering to the discovery of choices that enable people to actively engage life. Depression, anxiety, fear and difficult feelings are not indicative of sickness, but rather signals that call for self-care, curiosity and empathy. I believe people's strengths are integral in the therapeutic process; I seek to help people access their humor, resilience, courage, intelligence, sensitivity and honesty throughout the healing process.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Boston, MA 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 Boston 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.
