My practice specializes in group psychotherapy for children and adolescents. Many common psychological conditions interfere with children's social functioning, and groups provide an opportunity for learning new skills, overcoming obstacles to social development, and building more satisfying relationships with peers and adults. We work with children and teens with social anxiety, depression and related mood disorders, ADHD, learning difficulties, mild autism spectrum disorders, and executive functioning deficits, and we focus on the social complications of these conditions. Parent support is an important component of our program. We work collaboratively with the child's individual psychotherapist and other providers.

The group program includes approximately 30 group sessions, 5 parent group sessions, and periodic individual/family sessions for individualized feedback and goal setting. Groups are available for most age ranges, from kindergarten through high school.

When an appropriate group is not available, or if group participation is too stressful, pair therapy or individual social coaching may be offered. Please contact me for more information.
