I specialize in the socio-emotional health of infants and young children. Parent, child mental health services address early signs of distress and support the parent's role, the unfolding parent/child relationship and the child's development. Healthy social emotional development is the foundation of early childhood mental health and develops within the relationship with the primary caregiver(s). Successful early relationships create a foundation for trust, self-worth, long-term social-emotional health and the capacity to learn and prosper in the school setting. I also provide child assessments and consultation for parents and educators in the creation of the optimal learning environment
