I enjoy providing counseling to young children, as the impact of intervention can have profound and meaningful developmental benefits. Children must be heard, and have an opportunity to express themselves in order to have any chance of progress, and I have experience interacting with parents as part of the process. I can perform guided counseling with or without parents present, and I aim to provide clarity in otherwise uncertain situations to parents and children alike.

Children, particularly young children, often do not have the ability to express how they feel in words and as a result, express their feelings through behavior-often inappropriate or undesirable behavior such as hitting, defiance, school refusal, and more. Power struggles over homework, getting up on time for school, complying with parental requests are also common problems of children today. Anxious children frequently complain of stomach aches, dizzy spells, and headaches. Working closely with the child and the child's parents, I implement child behavioral techniques and provide the parents' with tools to successfully manage their child's behavior as well as resolve any emotional distress

Licensed Psychologist

In 08540 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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
