I have 40+ years of experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families. My experience is broad and includes work in hospital, intensive outpatient/partial hospital, and office settings. In addition to the above areas of interest and expertise, sub specialties include work with OCD and Autism Spectrum Disorders, including what was formerly known as Asperger’s Disorder. Besides in office psychotherapy and counseling, I have extensive experience with assessment and evaluations. Regarding the latter, at the request of families and/or school systems, I provide comprehensive and detailed evaluations, which include parent and child interviews, school observations if applicable, administration of a variety of cognitive, personality and/or projective tests, and specialized instruments like the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2). Detailed reports are written in non technical language, and I sit down with parents, as well as with children and adolescents if appropriate, to review and explain findings and recommendations. I also believe strongly in the value of a collaborative approach with families, other health care providers, and school systems when applicable.
