MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL. I work primarily with children and adolescents who face a range of challenges. Among these might be anxiety, negotiating peer relationships, learning disabilities, ADHD, and/or losses (e.g. divorce, illness/death of a loved one). During the assessment process, I believe in learning the strengths of the child , parent(s), and other support networks (e.g extended family, school, religious community). From there, I collaborate with the parents and child /adolescent to create a plan for them to develop the skills necessary to address their current challenges.

Are you or your child currently struggling socially, emotionally, or behaviorally, and are feeling stuck with what to do? I first commend you for taking this step in seeking help, as it can feel difficult to be vulnerable.

Starting therapy, whether for yourself or for your child , can be a nerve-wracking, confusing, or even frustrating experience.
I'm a Boston-based therapist who works with children , adolescents, and college students. I specialize in treating trauma and all the tough stuff that comes with it- bad moods, anxiety, explosive anger, poor self-esteem, sadness- you name it. When a person's usual ability to cope is overwhelmed, a trauma response can be triggered, and I help my clients overcome the emotional and behavioral struggles that may follow. By building a safe and productive space for us to work within, I help my clients gain a positive, resilient sense of self and belonging.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Massachusetts provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Massachusetts build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
