In my 45 plus years of practice, I have found that most patients, before coming to see me may have tried to the best of their abilities to solve their problems. They may have consulted other psychotherapists or other allied professionals before coming to see me. The central task is for us to identify the nature of their psychological puzzle, and to find ways to collaborate in finding solutions to them. I have a particular interest in people who may have neurocognitive deficits. Also, I have an interest in children and adolescents whose parents are in the divorce process.

My mission, as a child and family therapist, is to support and partner with you and your child, if or when life presents you and him/her with difficulties and challenges. My mission is also to provide your child with effective tools in a safe, fun, and protective environment, so that together we can join in finding ways to handle some of those challenges. Some life events and challenges, whether they are physiological, biological, or environmental based, can produce emotional feelings, such as anxiety, sadness, depression, anger and confusion. Those feelings might impact the child's ability to manage or handle those events.

I believe that healing can occur within the context of a trusted relationship. I work with adults and families to help people better understand the things that are getting in the way of living a full, productive, and satisfying life. That could be a child’s struggle with emotional regulation, a parent’s difficulty setting limits or understanding their child’s behavior, an adult who struggles to develop and sustain intimate relationships, or a teenager who feels overwhelmed by all that is on their plate.

If you are looking for someone to complete a psychological evaluation, you want someone who can understand what you need and take the steps to look at all of the information and provide you with answers. I have done thousands of evaluations for children and adults over the years for a variety of referral questions. This experience helps me understand the needs for different types of evaluations. The assessments used, the language of a report, and the recommendations can mean the difference between a good report and a great report.

Raising children and managing a family can pose many challenges. It is not unusual for children to face adversity during some point of their development. During difficult times, I work with children and families to address social,emotional, or developmental challenges. I use a combination of play and talk therapy to provide relief from painful emotional symptoms and foster growth and resilience. I guide and support parents by sorting through the many questions and decisions that arise when parenting a child with emotional difficulties. Together, we will find new ways of resolving conflicts.

Through my decades of experience I have seen that we all struggle with feelings of not being "Good Enough" in some way. Whether that is smart enough, lovable enough, or many other not enoughs. We form these beliefs during our lives and many things trigger that NOT GOOD ENOUGH feeling. We may react emotionally when the "not good enough" feeling is triggered. EMDR & Mindfulness are great tools to help calm down our emotions so we have better control of them. My client's say I have an easy going and personable style. I have such high regard for my client's bravery and strength to seek help!

If you are continually questioning your worthiness or are struggling with chronic feelings of toxic shame, self-doubt, or questions about whether you belong, you are not alone. I believe that healing occurs in compassionate and emotionally attuned community with another where one can begin to metabolize what may have felt like too much or too little. Given our individual differences, the way we process the world may look vastly different and that's okay.

'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD Northfield), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Northfield; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Northfield.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.
