As a licensed family therapist, a former elementary school teacher and having raised a family, I have devotion and experience in addressing the needs of children. When parents contact me to provide therapy or anger management for their young children, I respond by bringing the parent or family into treatment as well. While I provide therapy for teens as individuals, I provide parenting skill therapy, explore educational concerns and offer family counseling as treatment to address the child's issues.

Being a new parent is often spoken of as if the main ingredient is joy, but this glosses over the complexities that women and men feel as they adjust to their roles as parents. More often than people would like to admit, the experience is trying and frustrating for mothers and fathers alike. Whether this is your first child, or your second or third time around, I can help you to get through the rough spots to the place we all want to be—confident, relaxed, in tune with your young ones, and in a stronger, more supportive alliance with your partner in childrearing.

I help with children as young as nine years old learn how to feel their feelings and take personal responsibility for them rather than make others responsible for how they feel. And then how to manage, communicate and release their feelings appropriately. I also help children build higher self worth, be more compassionate with themselves and learn how to make better choices.

Unwittingly, young children often become the center of conflict by appropriating the burdens of each family member and acting out the family issues. This leads to significantly disruptive behavior at school and home. The solution is to approach families, home life and school life as connected systems. Together, we can uncover and unpack the interwoven pressures and forces that shape our children in unhealthy ways to find positive alternatives to create peaceful and productive growth for everyone.

We have four clinicians who specialize in children and adolescents. Anger, anxiety, school refusal, trauma, OCD, performance anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, defiance, eating disorders, and even depression and self-injury are all areas of focus in our work with children. Our clinicians are well trained and understand how critical effective intervention as early as possible is, since children are forming behavioral patterns, relationships, and personality traits. We also understand how important the role of the parents and the entire family can be in supporting a child to change. Likewise, we recognize how much the entire family can benefit from experiencing the child's growth.

Parents are oftentimes spilling over with questions, frustration and even hopelessness when they bring their young son or daughter into treatment.

I am knowledgeable about young children, as I have a doctorate in child psychology. I am happy to advise or help parents with young children, who are taking a little longer to potty train, having a lot of tantrums, bedwetting, falling behind in school, may have a learning disability. I work closely with the parents, and in many cases would not treat the child directly. I usually focus on and get to know the parent, how I can best support them as a parent, as a spouse, and as a person in the world.

Children are sweet, sensitive, naive and trusting. Many children enter a world where there is more chaos than they deserve. Chaos challenges the ability o function optimally. In working with adults, parents and caregivers, I guide and educate adults in children lives how to Make best available choices while functioning under stress. By doing such, the adult is modeling for the child(ren) effective, strategic and positive ways of coping.

When children have problems, those problems are directly related to their relationship with their parents. Hence, my approach to working with children is to work with the whole family. If a child is acting up at school, he generally has parents who are, often unintentionally, not giving him what he needs at home. All parents want to believe that they are good parents, and it is hard for them to accept that they may be doing things that are causing their children to have problems. My job is to gently and patiently create a constructive atmosphere and honest communication between parents and children, which help the children resolve their problems and learn to thrive.

NYS Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 11572 - Nearby to Belmar.

I have worked with children from birth to 17 years in various modalities including individual, group, parent-child, and multi-family group therapy. Many parents have concerns related to behavioral difficulties at home and/or at school. While my goal is to help improve these behaviors and provide the child with tools and coping skills so that they can make better behavioral choices, I also believe it is important to involve the parent as much as possible in the therapy, so that the parent can maintain their authority and respect. In addition, I believe that it is important to focus on the parent-child relationship, to ensure that there are positive and playful interactions.
