Children, adolescents, and young adultsIn my practice, I specialize in working with children, teens, and young adults and their families. Common presenting concerns that I work with are attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and behavioral disorders, depression, anxiety, and learning disabilities, adjustment to life’s transitions as well as struggles between family members. I completed my post-doctoral residency with Juvenile Court Services and thus I have experience working with adolescents with more severe behavioral disruptions as well. My theoretical orientation tends to be a blend of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Family Systems Theory, and Play Therapy. I work to adapt my approach to best meet the needs of each client.I also have extensive experience conducting psychological evaluations for children, teens, and adults. Assessment may be useful for identifying learning disorders, ADHD, mental health concerns, or personality issues. In my assessment work, I strive to highlight the individual’s strengths in addition to their areas for change or growth. By fully understanding the individual, the most appropriate and most useful recommendations can be made to help foster personal goal achievement. I am also happy to share these results and recommendations with your child’s school or treatment providers (only with your permission) by attending school staffing meetings, IEP meetings, or through phone consultations.
