I'm an LCSW conveniently located across from Madison Square Park at 25th and Broadway. I'm psychodynamically oriented, and I specialize in play therapy, trauma, and attachment. I enjoy helping families to strengthen relationships. Play is a child's natural way of communicating, and thus is the perfect tool for therapy with young children. I often work with older children and teens as well, and tailor my therapeutic approach to the needs of each family I work with. If you're concerned about your child's behavior or emotional well-being, I'd love to help.

I have training specific to trauma, grief, and loss, as well as supporting families coping with adoption-related issues. I understand the importance of including caregivers in a child's therapy, and will include you every step of the way.

I understand that it isn't easy to reach out for help for your child, but I'm here to make sure therapy is helpful for both of you. In addition to supporting your child or teen through therapy, I'll also create behavior strategies you can utilize at home.
