About

I am here to help children, teens and their parents develop well-being during these very stressful times. Raising children is hard; raising children who have ADHD, relationship difficulties, anxiety, learning issues, and/or depression is even harder. Parents need help and so do their kids. Therapy and coaching offer a venue to express feelings, practice new skills, and establish new ways of connecting with one another. I have also traveled extensively and completed my doctoral research on acculturation, academic stress, and burnout and have a unique interest and skill set in serving families returning to the US from abroad.
As a school psychologist with 15+ years of practice experience, I use an array of strategies/methodologies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Social IQ development and Executive Functioning Coaching to help my clients make difficult changes. I also offer psycho-educational assessment and school observation services.
I am a parent myself, and combined with my professional experience, you can be assured I will listen to your specific issues with a seasoned and empathetic ear.

Constantina N. Kass's Groups

International Student Adolescent Therapy Group

Is your child having trouble adjusting to life in the United States? Does your child feel homesick? Does your child feel isolated, angry, anxious or sad? I offer a six-week therapy group for students who have recently moved to the US and would benefit from assistance acclimating to a new environment. The goals are to provide a better understanding of local culture and traditions, to learn the different stages and models of acculturation, and to discuss feelings, perceptions, and experiences in a supportive group. I am developing separate co-ed groups for middle school high school students.

More about this group

Stepping Stones Social IQ Parenting Groups

Stepping Stones groups involve child groups and parent groups meeting simultaneously to learn about Social IQ. During their group, children learn social skills in order to commit them to “muscle memory”, where social behaviors become more natural and automatic. Since parents play a huge role in rehearsing these skills, the parent group also covers these skills so they are able to reinforce and deepen their children’s understanding. The group meets for 40 weeks, providing a comprehensive curriculum with a lasting impact.

Girls Group for Teens on the Spectrum

Group therapy for youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be a powerful force to help them understand their feelings, tolerate distress and difficult emotions, and connect with others and learn ways of expressing themselves. The shifting sands of physiology, emotions, socialization, and cognition create difficulty for many adolescents. Teens with ASD must face all of these challenges as well as managing the additional burdens of developmental difficulties from childhood. The complexity of new social situations, pressure to fit in, and difficulties putting thoughts and feelings into words put many of these teenagers at risk for depression and anxiety.
