Dr. Sara Volkman Shack

Psychologist , PsyD

(610) 915-8201
Much of my success in working with children has come from my ability to effectively establish a strong therapeutic relationship. I give them a safe place in which they can effectively express their feelings. Boundaries are extremely important in this process. My patients know that what they say in my office stays in my office. I work collaterally with the family to help address the child's needs, without violating their trust or the boundaries we have established.
I specialize in working with children aging from preschool through young adulthood. I am comfortable working with a wide variety of issues including family problems, learning problems, ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety and pervasive developmental disorders. I have also been trained in working with children who have been abused.
I believe that it is critical to recognize a child's strengths while treating their problems. By growing their strengths it gives the child a stronger sense of self and helps them achieve their goals. In doing this I often collaborate with parents, schools and other treatment providers.
