"My practice focuses on supporting professionals working in international development, international affairs and public affairs, particularly on improving parenting skills. I use both supportive and insight-oriented talk therapy to help professionals/parents identify areas of difficulty/sensitivity with children/adolescents as well as their other caregivers, strategize what can be changed, and then provide ongoing support and evaluation as parents try to adjust their parenting style. When possible I try to make arrangements for behavioral observation of children/adolescents, and if indicated conduct formal psychological testing. "
