I believe that every parent I've ever worked with loves their child and is doing the very best that they can. But while parenting is the toughest job anyone will ever have, children don't come with a "how to" manual. I can provide those "how to" directions, tailored for your unique child and family situation. As a Ph.D. level clinical psychologist and Board-Certified Behavior Analyst, I have the expertise to treat a very broad range of behavioral issues, associated with a myriad of diagnoses.
Problem behaviors I can help to reduce include:
* Aggressive behavior (hitting, throwing, yelling)
* Refusal to follow directions
* Separation problems
Skills or behaviors I can help you build in your child:
* Doing household chores
* Getting homework done
* Going to school
* Undertanding social rules
* Using spoken language to communicate
Just some of the diagnoses that I am qualified to both evaluate and treat include: Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD or ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Anxiety Disorders (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Separation Anxiety Disorder, Selective Mutism), Mood Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Enuresis (as long as physical causes have been ruled out and/or treated by a physician), Encopresis (as long as physical causes have been ruled out and/or treated by a physician), Nonverbal Learning Disorder, and Specific Learning Disorders.
