Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
If you are worried about your child, I may be able to help. I work with children who are struggling with emotional and social difficulties that make every day challenges harder and interfere with feeling confident and secure. Separation issues, fears, relatedness issues, and parent-child issues are frequent motivations for parents to seek my services. I also offer ongoing parent guidance and 3 session consults on children who are presenting with symptoms that are difficult for parents and teachers to sort out.
I treat children between the ages of 2 and 12 who may benefit from short term consultation or ongoing psychotherapy. I have worked in play, drawing and talking therapy to help children integrate unresolved developmental and life experience issues that are causing distress at home or in school.
I'm the author of several books on child mental health, and Director of the Center for Emotionally Responsive Practice at Bank Street College. I frequently treat teachers who juggle their own needs and their student's needs. My private practice is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
