As a Psychologist and Founder of Rockville Therapy Center LLC and Confident Kids Camp-DC Metro for Selective Mutism, I work with ages 3+ whose lives are affected by Selective Mutism and other Anxiety Disorders, Tics and Tourette's, OCD, and habits, such as hair pulling and nail biting. Treatment sessions are held in individual, family, group, and intensive therapy formats. I engage in ongoing communication with family, school, and community systems to foster collaborative relationships and optimize treatment success and quality of life. Learn more at www.therapyrockville.com or drscharfstein@therapyrockville.com or 301-245-6260.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, Exposure/Response Prevention for OCD, Comprehensive Intervention for Tics, and Parent Training. My particular interest include treatments that enhance social functioning, including the Confident Kids Camp-DC Metro, a 5-day intensive behavioral treatment program for selective mutism.
To increase awareness and education on mental health, I frequently provide community workshops, and offer professionals training and consultation in the areas of childhood anxiety, selective mutism, and anxiety based school refusal.

Lindsay Scharfstein's Groups

More about this group

Confident Kids Camp-DC Metro for Selective Mutism

Confident Kids Camp - DC Metro is a 5-day, behaviorally-based intervention for kids with Selective Mutism. While years of research have found typical therapy (weekly sessions in clinical) to be beneficial in treating Selective Mutism, many practitioners have noticed a missing component - generalizing these gains to the school setting in an intensive manner. This intensive treatment camp allows 30 hours of effective treatment to be provided in a week versus the typical treatment of 1 hour per week. Thus, children with Selective Mutism can "get better" faster!
