Psychological Solutions for Children & Adolescents

Experience

I provide a unique blend of evidence-based treatments for youth, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and positive psychology. For over 15 years, I have been providing individual and family therapy for preschool- and school-aged children, adolescents, and young adults. I utilize a holistic approach that includes ongoing collaboration with each client's family, school, and other healthcare providers. At the outset of treatment I develop a clear, goal-oriented treatment plan with each client, and during the course of treatment we regularly evaluate progress toward each goal.

I received my PhD in clinical psychology and child psychology from the Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota. My primary areas of expertise include the assessment and treatment of anxiety and depression related to perfectionism and excessive stress, including academic burnout. I also have training in the assessment and treatment of behavioral difficulties (e.g., ADHD, ODD, anger management), eating disorders, autism-spectrum disorders, adjustment to divorce, and family and peer relationship problems. Additionally, I have a great deal of experience working with diverse populations across the country, including individuals from Latino, African-American, Asian-American, Native-American, GLBT, and various socioeconomic backgrounds.
