The Psychology of Childhood

How many of us remember being told that childhood is "the best time of our lives" only to end up hoping this wasn't true? The reality is, being a kid isn't easy and nothing is tougher than seeing our children in any kind of pain.

My approach is collaborative, including family, school and medical personnel if necessary. I help your child work toward the realization of his or her greatest potential by creating individualized treatment plans based on your child’s inherent gifts, including:

These include Behavioral Plans for: 

  • Academic underachievement
  • Anger management
  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Confidence building for a special needs, or bullied child
  • Trauma recovery and
  • Grief and loss

Your Next Step for Child Therapy

Children are most responsive when they're relaxed, so I approach, and encourage, sessions with a sense of fun and silliness! Call me today at (818) 297-4444 to schedule a brief consultation where we can discuss how to best help your child reach his or her potential and help them through this rough time.

I provide individual therapy, couples counseling, and child and family therapy for the greater San Fernando Valley area, including Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Hidden Hills, Bell Canyon, Encino, Tarzana, Agoura, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and Malibu.
