My practice consists of children ages 3-18 who display emotional and/or behavioral symptoms. The majority of my patient population include children suffering from Anxiety (which can involve Separation Anxiety, Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Depression and other mood-related issues, low self-esteem, Attachment Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity-Disorder and behavioral disturbances. Many of the children I work with come in to address socialization issues, either through 1:1 therapy or through my Social Skills Group for Kids. I specialize in diagnostic evaluations and treatment for pediatric populations.
I use a supportive and individualized approach to treating my patients, while implementing Cognitive-Behavioral methods, in order to teach adaptive coping skills. I work with families collaboratively to develop behavior-modification programs when needed, to provide structure in the home. I offer positive parenting techniques to reinforce pro-social behaviors.

I am a a clinical psychologist specializing in work with tweens, teens, young adults, and their families. While I am trained in CBT, DBT, cognitive and psychodynamic therapies, I believe in an eclectic perspective. I approach each client as a unique individual. As such I am not anchored to any one treatment approach or protocol. Basically I believe in doing what works. My flexible approach to treatment focuses on the goal of helping the client to help him or herself. In order to achieve this outcome I envision myself as a teacher of skills. I help my clients hone existing skills and develop new ones. I truly believe that when individuals feel competent and empowered, anything is possible.
In addition to my work as a clinician I am also the co-author of the book Teenage as a Second Language (Adams Media 2010) and the creator of www.itsatweenslife.com.
I am a seasoned presenter. In this role I have had the honor of speaking at conferences and college campuses and many other venues across the nation on field related topics. I am also regularly featured in both national and international media as an expert in my field.
I am a published researcher and writer, and I am an adjunct professor of psychology at Pace University.
Please feel free to contact me on my direct line with any questions or to make an appointment.

My practice is geared towards children ages 10 and up, adolescents and young adults, and adult populations.
Within these age groups, I work with individuals, parents, families and couples who are coping with anxiety and stress, anger problems, depression, school and relationship problems, family and marital conflicts, ADHD, eating disorders, self-injury and/or substance use. I work to help guide the individual towards positive change through a recognition of maladaptive patterns of behavior, goal-setting, coping strategies and finding balance and perspective in one’s life. I help the individual to become unstuck in terms of how they deal with obstacles, and help them make better choices that are empowering and foster self-esteem and growth.
