About

What is child therapy? Do children sit and talk over their problems like adults do? How do I know if my child needs professional help? And, what kind of therapist is best suited for my child? Most adults have a hard time understanding that children, especially very young children, can be in need of psychotherapy. In my private practice, where I specialize in the treatment of children and adolescents, parents bring children of all ages to me with a variety of reasons for their anxiety or depression. School related issues are quite common. Children who struggle with learning and attention deficit issues are prone to lowered self-esteem, often accompanied by behavior issues at home or in school. These children may also have developed problems making friends. Other children I see are feeling the effects of a transition or loss within the family. This could pertain to an illness, death, separation or divorce of parents, even the result of a parent's depression.
In therapy, some children do talk directly about their problems, but often the most viable communication and growth experience for children is through play. Therefore, it is essential when choosing a therapist that the individual be a trained child therapist who knows just how to listen and respond to your child.
Along with my advanced clinical training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy of children and adolescents, I have 25 years clinical experience with children and parents, a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education and I am a former teacher. I apply my training, skills and experience to meet the particular needs of each child, to collaborate with other specialists in the child's life and to support parents in the process of change.
