Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy

We work with children and teenagers of all ages presenting with a variety of emotional and behavioral problems that commonly impact their ability to function well in school, make and maintain friendships and have positive family interactions.

Some of these difficulties can include:

Because the child or adolescent functions within different systems in their daily lives including their family, school, community and culture, we will devise a plan that will address the ways in which the client can be supported by these systems while they are engaging in the therapy process. As such, therapy sessions can be conducted with the client with frequent parent-client sessions, with dyads (parent/client, siblings) or with the whole family.

We also sub-specialize in working with very young children (infants, toddlers, preschool age) in individual play therapy and parent-child dyadic therapy to address concerns such as tantrums, aggression, oppositionality/defiance, fears and separation anxiety. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, parent-child interaction therapy (PCIT) and family therapy approaches are commonly implemented to achieve clinical goals.

We are available to speak with you at (917) 723-9986 or email to explore your needs and see if we are a good clinical fit.

More information about these difficulties and ways to cope with them is available on the Resources page.
