I am a child and adolescent therapist who works with young people and their families in a developmentally sensitive manner. Through careful listening and collaborative parent work, we create the possibility for change. Younger children use play as their most authentic means of communication. Talking directly about worries can be overwhelming. Play becomes a rich way for me to communicate with your child. Older children often communicate directly about their concerns, but will play while we talk. Play gives them a feeling of control and familiarity when addressing difficult issues.

I provide talk therapy and specialize in women’s issues, loss and grief, anxiety, depression and trauma, family work, and adolescent development.
I have always been the person people come to talk to and my practice is a natural extension of myself. I strive to develop a trusting and comfortable clinical relationship with all my clients, where they process their various challenges, life changes, pains, uncertainties, and family dynamics. Thirty years of practice have taught me how incredibly resilient the most struggling individual can be given the genuine support of others and even without it. Building from my clients’ resilience and our clinical relationship, treatment evolves and mental health is found, strengthened, or regained.

My areas of specialized training and interests include trauma, addictions, gender identity, Sexual orientation, sexuality, parenting, ethnic and racial identity concerns, social justice work, immigration, women's health, and adolescent development.
Starting therapy is a leap of faith at a time when hope is scarce. It is an act of courage. I prioritize symptom relief and stabilization, but I believe that lasting change and growth stem from a deeper understanding of our histories, relationships, internal worlds, and motivations. I work best with people who are willing to take a risk and become curious about their own complexity. I believe social and political environments, genetic predispositions, and intergenerational histories all interact to manifest our challenges and gifts. Ideally, my clients would be open to uncovering the many unconscious forces at play in their lives.

I've spent the last two decades in support of children, youth and families, with a special expertise in adolescents/ adolescent development.
Therapy should not and cannot be "one size fits all." It should be rooted in a consistent, deep effort to understand who you are and what you need, in relation to the resources you have near you. Therapy should also be practical and offer some fairly immediate results, even though bigger change takes time. It's ultimately about collaboration, and the formation of a helpful relationship. Although I have 25 years of clinical experience to bring to our work, it is more important that you feel we have a good match as we enter this work together. I trust that after we talk, you'll know whether it seems like the right match.

I have 15 years experience working with children ages 4 and up, adolescents and adults. My early interest in child and adolescent work came from a commitment to recognizing these little humans as people with their own thoughts and feelings and in acknowledging how much they can challenge their loving parents. Thankfully there is a lot of wonderful literature and resources for parents, but meeting with a professional that takes the time to understand the specifics of your family and your needs is still an invaluable experience. I hope you will consider me for this.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW-R
I specialize in working with adolescent clients (gay, lesbian, straight, questioning and transgender), which includes providing support and guidance to their parents.
Psychotherapy offers us the opportunity to have the support we need to examine those areas of our lives we find painful, confusing, and/or challenging. It is common for all of us from time to time to feel "stuck" in our lives, or faced with problems that we cannot seem to overcome. My goal is to help my clients access their internal and interpersonal resources in ways that are healing and help them gain a greater sense of personal agency in their lives. We may achieve this by exploring the past, looking at the present, or a combination of both.

Finding a psychologist who is a good fit, especially at the time of emotional crisis can be challenging. To find someone who is empathic, but also direct and firm, who is not afraid to call you out when you most need it, someone who understands the real life challenges of being a parent, teen , or young adult and who approaches challenges with a sense of humor and compassion, someone who has the right training, expertise, and schedule, can be daunting, to say the least. I am a CBT/DBT trained and practicing psychologist who is compassionate and direct.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Park Slope, Brooklyn and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
