I believe that most children and adolescents can benefit from connecting with another adult to help them sort through their struggles, even short-term. Working in schools for the past 18 years has taught me how to work collaboratively with all the people in your child 's life to help them to achieve success. I am able to see the "whole child " as a result, and treat accordingly. I have found that child and adolescent therapists are few and far between, and I hope to be a resource to you.

I am eager to help you with any health behavior change you are seeking to make for yourself or your children , such as overcoming obstacles to maintaining a healthy weight or managing a chronic illness.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my practice. By creating a space of curiosity and non-judgment, I seek to develop strong relationships with my patients and work along side them to navigate difficult times. My practice is collaborative and relational with a balance between skill-building that relies on a cognitive behavioral approach and strong attention to the therapeutic relationship. I offer a transparent approach in both brief and long-term therapy. PLEASE BE AWARE I DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE OPEN AFTER SCHOOL, EVENING OR WEEKEND APPOINTMENT TIMES (November, 2018).

in Clinical Psychology and additional training as a Child and Adult Psychoanalyst.
I have been in practice for 25 years and work in my private, comfortable home office. People find me easy to talk to and often say I have the right balance between empathy and challenging them when necessary. People come to therapy because they are having difficulties handling their emotions in their work (or school) and personal relationships. As an Adult and Child Psychoanalyst, I have considerable experience working with a wide range of people from 3 years old and up to mature adulthood. I particularly like working with preschoolers, under-achieving "gifted" children , seemingly "lost" adolescents, adults and Seniors dealing with aging and retirement.

I specialize in neuropsychological and psychological evaluation of children and adults (ages 4 and up). Testing can be helpful in determining someone's unique cognitive and emotional profile. Testing is often helpful in determining diagnosis of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Learning Disorders, and Emotional or Behavioral Disorders. As part of the process, I work closely with educational and outpatient providers.

I also treat families having difficulties with their children .
How do I effectuate change? I believe change occurs from a sustained active approach with the therapist. Why is there a need for change? Many people report affective states of anxiety, depression, and stress that are inhibiting them in their work, personal lives, and enjoyment of life. My education and experience put me in a unique position to give people the understanding to find satisfaction from their personal, family and work life. Therapeutic interactions are in the here and now. Understanding often leads to an improved quality of life; alleviating anxiety, depressive feelings as well as fears of being stuck.

I work with adults, children , couples and families.
A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit. I am only working virtually via Zoom and no longer working with children under 12.

Whether long standing issues or reactions to recent stressors, from our first visit, my role is that you feel welcomed, safe, and supported.

CBT really works! Especially when you are working with a trained and experienced therapist. I hold advanced certification in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and use this approach exclusively. Together we will work to improve your insight, mood and motivation. You will learn what influences your mood and decision-making, and how ways of thinking and doing can lead to feeling stuck and hopeless. In addition to CBT, I can teach you powerful skills to improve distress tolerance and emotional regulation. These are skills you will learn to use now, and can rely on in the future. Let's get started!

My specialty is working with young children from birth to 5 years old.
It is often not easy to be human. Development is an ongoing process that presents unique challenges throughout the lifespan. From the beginning of life, when developmental tasks involve regulating body states and forming primary attachments, to later when goals shift to negotiating romantic relationships, possibly starting a family, and balancing career and family goals, it can be hard to negotiate these challenges. Psychotherapy can ease the distress that can accompany life changes, allowing people reach their potential.
