I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in treatment of children , adolescents and young adults from a family systems perspective. This means that I provide support not only to the identified individual seeking therapy, but I strongly consider the needs of all individuals within the family dynamic. I work from a relational perspective and provide long-term individualized mental health treatment and care.

I work with children , adolescents, and adults with a wide range of issues, with particular expertise in behavioral problems in children and alcohol/drug-related issues in adults.
Clients who seek my services are interested in making measurable quality of life changes. Emotional distress and conflict can create significant obstacles to psychological and overall well-being. Whether a child , an adolescent, adult, or family, conflict can lead to behavioral problems, abuse of alcohol or other substances, difficulty establishing and sustaining close relationships, and a loss of vision or purpose for one's life. Psychotherapy becomes the process from which a person uncovers conflict, explores barriers, identifies options, and pursues paths of change.

If you have a preschooler or elementary school aged child , and are seeking help navigating the special education process, are dissatisfied with school district evaluations, would like a comprehensive assessment of your child 's abilities, or seek answers to the question "what is going on with my child ?", I would love to be a resource for you.
In my 40 year career, I have focused on the educational, social and emotional needs of children in the preschool and elementary years. You may have concerns about your child 's development. School personnel may be recommending an evaluation by a psychologist to clarify your child 's challenges. You may feel that the school district is not adequately responsive to your child 's needs, and want to learn how to navigate the special education system. You may be looking to supplement a psychological evaluation completed by the school. As a parent, you may be feeling overwhelmed and seek guidance to support your child 's development.

My psychotherapy with adolescents and children , and their parents, focuses on parent- child problems, problems with peers (including shyness), anxiety and sadness, and school related problems and, in particular, how developing personality disorders impact self development and interaction with others.
I do individual psychotherapy with adults, children and adolescents, and couples and families. I work with my clients to improve their relationships and aspects of their personalty and feelings about themselves; to better manage and understand emotions such as depressed mood and anxiety; and to reduce problems with partners, children , and co-workers. I typically use an integrative approach that incorporates psychodynamic and cognitive principles, and my clients and I construct a climate that feels safe for examining the difficult emotions, thoughts, and situations that have interfered with their pleasure and satisfaction.

As an experienced therapist with postgraduate training, I have worked with adults, children and couples with a variety of concerns.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, distracted and unable to feel like your "normal" self because of worry or sadness? Are you and your partner constantly engaged in conflict and longing for a restored connection? Is your child exhibiting behaviors in school or home that have left you feeling ill equipped, confused or angry? As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist I believe that the way to make change for a more satisfying life is to explore, understand and find the meaning behind our patterns and past experiences including what may be outside our awareness.

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.
