Our psychologist is expert in the diagnosis and management of children with emotional and behavioral problems.
Therapy can involve an individual child or their family.
Psychotherapy can play a key role when emotional and behavioral issues start to become excessive, don’t go away, prevent your child from participating in everyday activities, and affect their social and learning opportunities and their relationships with others.
Who do we help?
Our psychologists are experts at diagnosing and helping children with learning and behavioral problems as well as mental health conditions.
We see children who have developed behavioral difficulties at school or at home. They might become anxious for no apparent reason or feel sad and depressed. Often these problems are the result of emotional distress that can be hard to recognize and talk about.
We help children with:
- Assessment of Autism
- Intellectual disabilities
- Social Maturity test
- Developmental screening test
- Specific learning difficulties
A comprehensive evaluation by a professional in child development and behavior can be beneficial in understanding the specific developmental delays and in guiding parents to approach appropriate interventions required for the child.
What do we do?
Our team provides extensive evaluation and treatment for children and adolescents (and their families) who are facing challenges with their adjustment to a medical condition or its clinical management.
We aim to build self-esteem, improve communication, stimulate development, provide emotional support and improve emotional vocabulary with your child.
- use fun activities such as games, drawing, pretend and unstructured play to share feelings and resolve problems, as children can’t always translate their feelings into words.
- Work with families, parents and educators to resolve conflicts and set goals.
- Provide advice to parents and teachers about how to best manage negative behaviors and their triggers.
- Apply different assessments tools to diagnose autism spectrum disorders.
- Perform assessments to make a diagnosis of an intellectual disability or specific learning disorder.

A clinical psychologist is a mental health professional with specialized training in the diagnosis and psychological treatment of mental, behavioral and emotional illnesses.
Parents should look out for the following signs of depression in children:
- Behavioral problems at school.
- Changes in eating or sleeping habits.
- Feelings of sadness or hopelessness.
- Lack of interest in fun activities.
- Low energy levels or general tiredness.
- Mood changes, such as irritability.
Depression among children and adolescents is common but frequently unrecognized. It affects 2 percent of prepubertal children and 5 to 8 percent of adolescents.
Treatment options for kids with childhood depression are similar to those for adults. They include psychotherapy (counseling) and medication.
Try these strategies during your child’s temper tantrum:
- Find a distraction
- Stay calm
- Ignore the tantrum
- Keep them in sight
- Keep them safe
Do not reward your child's tantrum by giving in. This will only prove to your little one that the tantrum was effective.
Sit with them, or leave them in a safe place, until they calm down. This will often only take a few minutes . When your child acts aggressively, giving them time out will help them to see that their behavior has consequences.
1. Keep your child engaged.
- 2. Limit screen time.
- 3. Set password
- 4. Disable notifications
- 5. Establish phone-free periods each day.
Psychologists diagnose ASD/ADHD by analyzing the child’s history and monitoring their behavior, assessment and parental interview.
