Bio

We treat children, adolescents and adults with behavioral issues, mood disorders, developmental and personality disorders. I work with parents to develop behavioral plans for their homes and families to supplement the therapy done with their children/adolescents in my office.
My graduate training dealt with adolescent male patients with behavioral problems, emotional intelligence deficiencies, sexual abuse history and suicidal gestures and ideation. I see many single parents struggling with their children at home or in school. I enjoy working with families, single parents and their children and prefer to "rule out" more than quickly diagnose.
