Through the use of art/play therapy, I work with children to help them express their feelings in healthy ways and provide skills to reduce anxiety, depression, social difficulties, and conflict.
Feeling understood is an important aspect of personal development and life satisfaction at any age. As a Columbia University trained therapist, I provide a warm and nurturing environment where children , adolescents, and adults feel supported and are better able to understand and manage their emotions and behavior. I offer a safe place for individuals to process and cope with transition and challenges such as relationship concerns, divorce, grief, and traumatic experiences. My passion is helping women, young adults and children meet their individualized therapeutic goals and live their lives to the fullest potential.

As a parent, are you at wits end because your child is constantly acting out? Is your child depressed or showing signs of anxiety in school or social settings? Your not alone, these are common behavior traits exhibited by children . As a Licensed Psychologist and School Psychologist for 28 years, I treat families with Cognitive Behavior Skills. Clients learn problem solving and coping skills applying CBT techniques to real life problems in their lives. In an empathic, supportive manner, I support clients controlling their emotions rather than be controlled by them. I treat anxiety disorders agoraphobia, OCD and mood disorders.

I am a firm believer in encouraging positivity, bolstering self-efficacy, and cultivating independence in others. My typical client is a child , adolescent, or young adult (age 3 to 29) who may be struggling academically, socially, or with developing effective emotional coping skills. Often, the individuals I see have difficulty with attention, concentration, organization, and with meeting the daily demands required of them at school. I also offer much support to parents who may be frustrated with their attempts at connecting with their kids and who are in need of guidance relating to discipline techniques and behavior management.

I help parents work with schools, advocate for their children and understand accomodations that might benefit their child .
Have you ever said: "No one ever taught me how to be a parent or spouse?" Perhaps navigating the relationships at work is posing a challenge. I help clients look at patterns of communication and behaviors that aren't working and help them understand their origins. Together, we develop an understanding of what is causing the difficulties so that we may address them successfully. I've been a psychologist for 25 years, helping clients enhance their relationships with family members, friends and colleagues. While much of my work is with adults, I am also a child psychologist.

**NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS, WILL UPDATE SOON** Because art is limitless and imaginative for all ages, I utilize multi-mediums such as clay, paint, watercolor, writing, and mindfulness. Art is used as a platform to create a safe space for one to enhance their self-expression and thus their subconscious mind.

I have extensive experience working with children , adolescents, and adults.
Sometimes life seems difficult or impossible to cope with. Maybe there are goals you haven't achieved or behaviors you have wanted to change, but haven't been able to for some reason. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, parenting stress, or are coping with past or current trauma, psychotherapy can help. It can be that crucial first step in making positive changes and achieving your goals.

When children and adolescents engage in unhelpful patterns of thinking or behavior, it can be hard to get unstuck. Therapy gives kids the tools to problem-solve, grow past obstacles to their success, and replace unhealthy coping styles with healthier ones. It is a place where they learn to navigate their difficult emotions and make changes that allow them to thrive and be their best selves.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
