MY SPECIALTIES

DEVELOPMENTAL ISSUES

Not all developmental domains grow in sync with one another. I can assess your child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. I will provide strategies to address growth in deficient domains.

RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING

Parent-child, estrangement, adoption, siblings, reunification, divorce and reconciliation can all be addressed in individual and family therapy. Stepparents and co-parents are welcomed in my practice.

ADD/ADHD/AUTISM/SPECTRUM DISORDERS

If you’re wondering whether this applies to you or your child, I can provide an evaluation. I will equip with you techniques to manage behavior at home, and to cope better at school. I can help with parenting practices and act as your school liaison.

ANXIETY, STRESS AND TRAUMA

Do you feel pressure to be perfect all the time?  Do you often have feelings of doom? Social fears? Phobias? Do you have trouble making decisions? All of these can be addressed through talk, mind and body therapy.

SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT

I am open to discussions of all faiths and can suggest how to explore options, dive deeper and feel closer to God through prayer and meditation.  

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT

I have experience resolving family and co-parent conflicts out of court.  I can mediate towards the best interest of the child(ren).

PLAY THERAPY

The power of play and inner child awareness are used in my practice to build trust, rapport and improve social skills. I can teach parents how to relate to their child in parent-child sessions.

PARENTING

All parents get stuck at some phase because kids don't come with a manual. Get questions answered, advice on expectations and boundaries. Learn how to be on the same page as your spouse/partner and become empowered with effective approaches.

EMOTIONAL REGULATION

Extreme anger, frustration, sadness or suicidal thoughts from bullying or other issues can happen, 

I will find the root of these emotions and provide coping tools to regulate control.

DEPRESSION

If you're feeling lonely, not liking yourself or finding it hard to get going. I can provide brain changing strategies to help you come out of the darkness, and find ways to feel better.

SEXUALITY

I am comfortable discussing any issues or questions related to sexual development/curiosity. I will listen with compassion and provide guidance towards self-acceptance.

EDUCATIONAL CONSULTATION

I can assist with decisions regarding school readiness, private school selection, college choice and major, career launch.
