Therapy for Children & Teens

Whether you're thinking about seeking therapeutic help for your child or teen for the first time or looking for a new therapist for them, the search and process can often feel daunting. All of us want the best for our kids, and the therapeutic match is of great importance. 

Training & Experience Specific to Children & Adolescents

I thoroughly enjoy working with children and their parents. I employ play & art therapy techniques along with cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapy interventions to improve the well-being of my child patients. I am also familiar with CPS methods (Collaborative Proactive Solutions by Dr Ross Greene), which I find to be very useful and effective with children.

Areas of Experience

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • ADHD management through behavioral strategies

  • social skills building

  • low self-esteem

  • adjustment issues following an important life event

  • grief and losss

  • emotional regulation (dealing with big feelings, experiencing sensory overwhelm, etc)

  • gender exploration

  • social media preoccupation

  • body image issues (please note I do not work with eating disorders. If upon further assessment, it becomes apparent that the child / teen's predominant problem is an eating disorder, I will refer out to a different therapist with greater expertise in handling these areas.)

I provide parental coaching as well, and can provide referrals for more targeted therapies or assessments, depending on the problem. Having lived in four different countries, many bicultural / international families feel comfortable working with me.

My clinical internship was spent at The Quad Preparatory School in Manhattan working with twice exceptional (2e) students. I am currently pursuing additional training specific to child & adolescent psychotherapy, at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Research and Training in New York, where I am deepening my knowledge on psychoanalytic theory and techniques of child therapy.

I have also facilitated grief groups for children, and participated in a research study focused on improving the motor skills of children with cerebral palsy.
