About

The challenges of early childhood are sometimes overlooked. Common, age appropriate behaviors could be quite difficult to deal with. Moreover, when a child presents highly disruptive and even destructive behaviors, parents may experience helplessness, anxiety and even shame. Loving and caring parents may try to do all the right things and a child might still show signs of struggle. In these days of social distancing and ‘remote learning’, many of our support systems are not available as we wish. In these conditions, managing difficult behaviors could become like another full time job and increase levels of distress in the family.
I have two decades of experience supporting young children and their parents by identifying and treating problems according to their developmental context. I accept new patients for Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. PCIT is an evidence-based treatment for young children with intense behavioral problems and could be conducted using tele-health platform.
While tele-therapy with young children could be challenging, PCIT is conducted through "coaching" sessions and could work very well remotely. I usually conduct an initial 10-15 minutes phone intake to learn about the needs and assess if PCIT could be the right choice for you and your child at this time. Update 3/7/22: expect to have an opening on April.
