I specialize in providing short- and long-term parent consultation by phone and through a secure on-line platform. I help parents raising children with perplexing, worrisome, or frustrating behaviors.

You may be looking for a child therapist who can be a sounding board for problems that pop up during transitional periods. Or you might need to discuss more longstanding child-rearing challenges. I have experience with a wide range of children of all ages, and have supported parents for many years.

“I don’t have time to travel to a therapist’s office, but I’d like help from a child development specialist understanding my child’s behavior.”

“My child’s been fine until recently. Somehow we’ve hit a bump in the road. If I could think this through with someone, we could get back on track.”

“Everything’s going fine at home, but we’ve heard that my child’s having some behavior challenges at school. We need someone who can help us navigate this!”

I can help with challenges like these.

After learning about your family and concerns, I put together a consultation plan based on your parenting style and goals. As an experienced consultant to parents, I’ll have the complex demands of parenting in mind as we work together. The most meaningful consultation happens when you share specific examples of your interactions with your child.

I can help you with dilemmas such as:

  • Challenges with limits and following directions

  • Difficulty getting out the door in the morning, or at bedtime

  • Sibling rivalry

  • Challenges with peers

  • Inflexibility

  • How to collaborate with teachers about your child’s behavior at school.

If you would like to learn more about my practice, I offer a free 30 minute consultation. I invite you to contact me online or call my office at +1 (415) 596-0293 to schedule a time for us to connect.
