I work with adolescents and pre-adolescents to address a host of issues that can arise during these important stages of development, including:

-social skills deficits
-panic attacks
-oppositional behavior
-low self-esteem
-impulsivity & hyperactivity
-motivation, focus & attention difficulties
-challenging family dynamics
-stress management difficulties
-mood regulation difficulties
-issues related to learning disabilities
-academic challenges

An essential part of my work with adolescents & pre-adolescents is developing a trusting relationship in which they can open up and feel comfortable working on their problems. Within the context of this therapeutic relationship, I help them understand what is and is not working for them and why. We identify and set realistic goals and work in therapy towards achieving those goals by developing new strategies and skills.

Located in Montclair, NJ, I work with clients throughout the north Jersey area.
