I am experienced in the treatment of a wide range of child and adolescent conditions. These include behavioral difficulties (e.g., oppositional and disruptive disorder), tic and tourette syndrome, OCD, ADHD, depression, anxiety disorders (e.g., separation anxiety), childhood schizophrenia, developmental disorders, adjusting to the realities of life (e.g., back to school problems, sibling conflicts) and many other childhood psychiatric conditions.
I believe in a multidimensional treatment approach in the treatment of childhood disorders. I use an eclectic approach to the treatment, which includes modalities such as individual therapy, family therapy, behavioral therapy and parent guidance. I am well versed in the latest psychopharmacological treatments available for use in children.
