I help toddlers through teens with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, emotional control, ADHD, LD, Asperger's, giftedness, peer problems, sleeping/eating issues and self-harm. I also support families as they face a variety of life transitions such as step parenting, adoption, divorce, remarriage, illness and death. I have given hundreds of lectures and workshops, taught graduate students, conducted research, published, served on editorial boards and testified before congress. As a clinician and clinical supervisor, I have been privileged to help thousands of youngsters and parents. Clients describe my style as caring, practical, warm and supportive.
As a child psychologist, I can help on an as needed basis throughout the developmental years. Parents are always part of the therapy team. I also work with teachers and others as appropriate. Cognitive-behavioral methods are used, building on your child's strengths to address problem areas.
I offer both long and short term counseling. Treatment can be made more affordable with briefer and less frequent sessions. I also provide workshops, supervision, mentoring and consultation services. I would be pleased to meet with you to see how I might help you and your child.
