I hold two doctoral degrees - one in Special Education/Learning Disabilities and the second in Clinical Psychology/Child and Adolescent.
Making the decision to help a child or teen who is struggling academically, behaviorally, socially and/or emotionally may be the most important decision you make. I see each child/teen as a puzzle. Sometimes the pieces fit together perfectly and other times it is necessary to work really hard to find the right piece to complete the puzzle. I use a variety of techniques - play therapy, sand therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy. I believe that a child is part of a larger system, including parents, siblings, and schools. I strive to work with all aspects of a child's world.

I am most successful with children and teens experiencing anxiety, behavior issues and learning differences.
Welcome! I'd ask how you are but if everything was great, you would not be browsing this site! I enjoy children/young teens and their parents and work especially well with children experiencing school and home anxieties and behaviors. My 23 years of experience in a school setting have developed my skills with children struggling with social communication disorders correlated with moderate and high functioning autism/developmental disorders.Collaboration with parents around effective limit setting and improved family functioning is also an area of professional strength.

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping children, adolescents, and their families. I have extensive experience working with preschoolers, school-aged children, and adolescents with social, emotional, behavioral, and educational challenges. My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, social difficulties, learning disorders, divorce, and loss. Kids are sometimes sad when they sit by themselves at lunch. Others may be frustrated when they are not picked for games. Children may not have the social language skills, impulse control, social judgment, and/or abilities to develop and maintain friendships. I help children and adolescents develop these skills in individual and group therapy.

We all experience stress in our lives, but sometimes that stress is overwhelming and we have trouble coping. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can be an incredibly effective tool to help manage anxiety, depression, and other stress-related difficulties. CBT focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in everyday life. As a cognitive-behavioral therapist, my approach is collaborative, individualized, and based on scientific evidence.

School Issues Therapists
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Potomac can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counselors in Potomac help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Potomac Therapists work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Potomac all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Potomac academic counselor or school counselor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.
