Bottom line - It is my job to create a therapeutic milieu in which you and your child feel safe, validated, cared for and understood.
This summer marks 30 years that I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with children and families in Boca Raton and the surrounding areas. Having grown up in Boston and trained at Boston University and Massachusetts General Hospital I need to disclose I am still a Red Sox fan. My expertise lies in rendering therapy to children and families and consulting with parents to help them make sense of and deal with the myriad of challenges that our children present. I do not conduct conduct Psychological/Educational Evaluations so if necessary I will refer families to our local experts.

The decision to enter therapy is a courageous choice that can help empower people and help them achieve positive changes. As a New York trained psychologist, I pride myself on being an experienced, knowledgeable, nonjudgemental therapist, and offer a highy personalized approach tailored to each individual. I currently see adults of all ages for issues such as anxiety, depression, career changes, life transitions, marital issues,unsatisfying relationships, parenting issues, divorce, and loss or grief. In addition, I also work with children and adolescents, and have been trained in play therapy, a more comfortable way for younger children to express themselves.

You wish you could make it stop. The little voice inside your head that tells you, “You’ll never be good enough.” You’re losing sleep. You feel exhausted. And yet you just can’t seem to get that little voice to be quiet, even for just a few minutes a day. It started when you were a child , from a critical parent who demanded you get straight As on your report card, participate in numerous sports, and volunteer on the weekend. And when you weren’t perfect, their disappointment was known. You were used to the silent treatment. You were used to being afraid of their reaction. You were used to the unachievable standard.

You have been trying to help your child for a few months now. You are frustrated, tired and worried. All you want is for your child to feel good about themselves, get along with others and be successful. You have tried sticker charts, time-out, taking things away, talking and reasoning with them. Lately, what usually happens is you lose your patience and then regret yelling at them. You never imagined you would be looking for therapy for your child . Maybe it's the school that has suggested you get help for your child . At this point, you just want a professional to take over because you just don't know what else to do anymore.

It is so hard to see a child struggle.
My goal is for every student to be his or her personal best. I want my clients to realize their abilities and attain what they want to achieve. I empower your student, by helping him or her realize strengths and provide skills to overcome or compensate for challenges. We ALL have some attention deficit, anxiety, depression, learning, and autism spectrum disorder characteristics that interfere at times. Private psychological testing helps us know when these behaviors or feelings are beyond what is age expected and how it may hinder success. Individual therapy helps us learn to minimize the negatives, feel confident and be happy.

It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
