I am a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive training and experience in treating children, adolescents, and adults. As a therapist, I will work with you or your child to achieve better understanding of the difficulties you or your child is experiencing, and to discover more adaptive coping mechanisms. My style is non-judgmental, empathic, and compassionate. I tailor the therapy to the individual needs of the client (play therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, or insight-oriented treatment).
I specialize in evaluating and treating children, adolescents, and adults with a history of trauma. My treatment specialties include:
Trauma (sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect)
Adolescent & Teen Issues
Acting Out Behaviors
Parenting your difficult child/teen.
Impulse Control Disorders
Loss & grief
I particularly enjoy working with children and adolescents struggling to find their own identity and adaptively coping with the pressures of daily life related to school, relationships, parents, etc.
Languages Spoken: English & Russian.
Evaluations & Testing
I have expertise performing testing to better understand each child’s or adolescent’s specific learning strengths and weaknesses and to help determine appropriate school placement.
I also have extensive experience evaluating children and adolescents in a forensic setting.
