New York City, Westchester and New Jersey
Parenting is the most important, gratifying and fascinating job any of us will ever have. But parenting can also be stressful, puzzling and difficult. Everyday decisions are hard enough, but when there is any kind of problem, parenting becomes even more challenging. To make matters worse, there is ever present, conflicting advice from family, friends and self help books. No wonder parents often feel confused and lack confidence.
That’s why I started ParentConfidante Consulting. As a mother, grandmother, school psychologist, parent educator and child advocate for more than thirty years, I have experienced the joys and frustrations of parenting firsthand and have helped countless parents make better decisions for their families. I work with Manhattan, Brooklyn, Riverdale, Westchester, and New Jersey families and give them the tools they need to make positive changes and help their children succeed. I have a commonsense, practical approach which brings clarity to the problem and provides techniques for success. When it comes to parenting, there is no one size fits all – there are many paths to good parenting.
I work with parents and children preschool through high school and provide consulting regarding the very common but worrisome issues such as acting out behavior, homework resistance and poor academic motivation. I also make recommendations for the right NYC, Westchester and New Jersey preschools and private and public elementary, middle, and high schools.
Sometimes the problem is more severe and as a school psychologist I also help parents decide when there is a need for further evaluation, treatment and sometimes a special needs school. I'll direct you to the best doctors, therapists and tutors in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Riverdale, Westchester, and New Jersey.
Parenting can be fun and exhilarating. Unfortunately, I've found that parents often feel overwhelmed, isolated and most of all insecure. What I enjoy most in my work is seeing my clients gain the skills that bring back the joy in parenting.
