A bit about me: I grew up on Long Island and obtained my B.A. in psychology from Mount Holyoke College. I received M.S. and Psy.D. degrees in Combined School-Clinical Psychology at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology in the Bronx, where I completed my internship at NYU Child Study Center. After receiving my degree, I served as psychologist and eventually program director for the Center for Child Development at Queens Hospital Center, where I evaluated infants and toddlers for developmental delays and assessed school-age children for learning and attention issues. Here, I also worked closely with the hospital NICU and obtained certification as a Happiest Baby Educator. My husband and I then spent five years in Northern Virginia, where I worked on the Early Childhood Assessment Team for Fairfax County Public Schools as well as in private practice. After moving to Fairfield County, I worked briefly at The Soifer Center in White Plains before transitioning into private practice. I currently also work part-time at The Southfield Center, conducting psychoeducational evaluations as well as individual therapy. My husband and I have two young boys who keep us very busy!
As a member of the Village Pediatrics team, I meet with parents to discuss their various concerns related to parenting today. Topics of discussion may include:
Adjusting to change (birth, death, move, divorce, etc.)
Academic performance (learning issues, attention and executive functioning challenges, anxiety)
While many parenting challenges can be mitigated with a few “tweaks” in our approach and response to our children, sometimes there are difficulties that may require a greater level of professional support. If it becomes apparent during our consultation that more intensive supports (e.g., ongoing therapy, psychiatric consultation, home-based intervention) would be beneficial, I will refer you to a provider in the community who would be best suited to your and your child’s needs.
