About the Practice

There are very few people who are trained and experienced using psychotherapeutic and behavioral interventions. Adam is one of those clinicians. He can work with you or your child on cognitive and emotional levels.

As you explore my Website, my hope, first and foremost, is that you’ll call me. Second, that as you read through the site you’ll smile and recognize that much of the content reflects the thoughts you have and the feelings you are experiencing. You are not alone. There are options and we can explore them together.

If you are seeking psychotherapy, we can talk about the approach you would like to use and move forward accordingly. While I am a licensed psychoanalyst, I utilized cognitive behavioral approaches as well. Recent research suggests the best outcome for patients is when both approaches are utilized together.

My education and experience includes; psychoanalytic trauma informed approaches and behavioral training.

Over the years, I have worked adults who have feelings of anxiety, depression, isolation, who have eating disorders, suffer from trauma, loss of a loved one, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, OCD, post traumatic stress disorder, PTSD and oppositional defiant disorder, ODD and adults and adolescents with drug and alcohol addictions.

In my 37 years of experience working with children I have worked with them and their family to address; anxiety, depression, trauma (loss of a parent due to death or divorce), domestic violence, emotional and/or physical abuse. I work with children their families and schools to address behavioral challenges and social emotional needs. I work with children diagnosed with Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, Rubella Syndrome, Schizophrenia, Attention Deficit Disorder, ADD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, and many other developmental delays. I have worked with patients from age 2 into adulthood. My experience has included working with children with behavioral issues (such as acting out through property destruction, non-compliance, aggression, and attending difficulties) and with children who needed to learn daily-living activities and other tasks to succeed in their lives.

When a child has special needs, no matter what the diagnosis, those needs, need to be addressed for the child to reach his or her fullest potential. Because of the multitude of theories and interventions it can be very difficult for a parent to know what to do.

It’s hard for a parent to know where to go and how to best address their child’s needs. Too often the needs of the family are forgotten or ignored. When addressing a child’s needs it is important that the needs of the parent(s) and immediate family also be addressed. They too have some special needs that need to be understood and addressed.
