Center for Mindful Development, PLLC

Learn, grow, and be well.

(Update July 2019): I am currently not taking new therapy clients. Please contact me about scheduling psychological and psychoeducational evaluations and parent consultations.

Welcome to the Center for Mindful Development, a practice dedicated to providing comprehensive psychological and educational evaluation, consultation and therapy to children, adolescents and their families. My practice is positive, supportive, and centered around the needs of the child, adolescent and family, specializing in the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities.

Mindfulness education is another component of my practice. I offer mindful parenting classes, sessions to individuals - parents, children and adolescents - as well as to schools and businesses. I look forward to seeing how I can meet your needs.

Therapy - to whom I provide services

I provide therapeutic services to children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety, mild depression, adjustment to life changes, school refusal or other school challenges. Additionally, I provide therapeutic support for young adults who find navigating the stressors of emerging adulthood difficult.

I also provide therapy for parents and families when a child's difficulties are affecting more than one member of the family. I offer parents help with the understanding and managing of children's behavioral challenges, both those associated with typical developmental milestones as well as those that are beyond what feels typical.

The experience of having your child diagnosed with a developmental disability can be uniquely challenging. I provide therapeutic support to parents and/or families who have a family member with a developmental disability. Often this support involves education about the disability as well as increasing the family's awareness of available community resources and looking at the positive aspects of receiving the diagnosis, while holding space for grief as well. In the winter of 2016, I offered for the first time, a support group for parents of children and adolescents with disabilities, called A Different Path. I have in the past (fall 2016) started teaching mindfulness to caregivers of a person with a developmental disability through the Cardinal Innovations waiver. Please contact me if you are interested in learning more. 

If I feel that my areas of specialty and level of expertise are not appropriate for your needs, I will work with you to find an appropriate referral. More details about therapy, including cost, can be found in my policies

Therapy - to whom I do not provide services

I do not provide therapeutic services to adults with history of significant mental illness (e.g., severe depression or anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder) or couples. I will assist you in finding appropriate resources for your needs.
