I work with families of children, adolescents and young adults seeking guidance in nurturing learning. The clients I see have a range of profiles that include, but are not limited to:
I do not do ongoing therapy. However many of the parents and students I have assessed return to me as needed over the years to touch base on issues of concern.
I’m not as knowledgeable about primary emotional or behavioral problems (e.g. depression, mood disorder, behavioral challenges) as I am about cognitive and learning issues. If a parent approaches me with an issue that is predominately psychological (e.g. eating disorder, bipolar) I can provide a referral to another clinician. However I do routinely work with students who have social, emotional and/or behavioral problems secondary to or co-morbid with their learning profile (e.g. anxiety secondary to ADHD). It is sadly not uncommon for primary learning challenges to result in secondary emotional ones.
I am located in New York city, and see clients from around the country and internationally at my office on the upper east side.
