As a bilingual (English/Spanish) psychologist with over 20 years of experience providing psychotherapy to adults, children, and families my goal is to assist you in finding the right path for you and/or your family. Utilizing an eclectic and collaborative approach, incorporating family systems theory as well as interpersonal and cognitive-behavioral techniques, I seek not to pathologize, but to help you reach a better understanding of yourself and others so you can thrive and not just survive.

As a therapist, I love working with children: learning about their families, their strengths, challenges, the problems which are worrying them and affecting their behavior. In our sessions we play and create things together, as play is the medium of communication for children in therapy, equivalent to adults' verbal engagement. Through talk and play, we develop an authentic emotional connection, in order to build a strong therapeutic relationship. Trust and collaboration are essential to the work of therapy for children as well as adults.

Improving our lives or relationships, or helping our children do so, may seem like a daunting challenge, yet we know when change is needed. Fortunately, we all have within us a natural capacity for growth and well-being that is best facilitated in the context of relationships that nurture the deepest parts of your being and awaken your strengths. Over the past 20 years I have gained a deep appreciation for the complexity of human experience and the pain and difficulties involved in living with emotional or relational problems in our lives or in our children's lives.

As a child psychologist I work with many children who struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioral challenges. It is vital to address these challenges early in a child’s development and to provide individualized treatment, tailored to the needs of the child and the family. Therapy will offer your child the opportunity to express their concerns, understand their emotions, and develop coping skills. In my work with adolescents I aim to help them to find balance between their emerging independence and their ongoing reliance on the adults in their lives.

In addition to working with adults, I have extensive experience treating children and adolescents across individual, family and group modalities.
My practice is centered on collaborating with my clients. I listen closely and explore carefully in order to develop a space in which my clients and I can come to a deeper understanding of what is interfering with their wishes and goals. Whether the struggle involves depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, emotion regulation or interpersonal issues, I offer a warm and empathic environment to facilitate the expression of difficult thoughts and feelings. Throughout my graduate and post-graduate training, I have found that using a flexible approach best enables my clients to work thru fixed or destructive patterns.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in New York, NY 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, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in New York 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.
