Leigh Bar-Yakov PsyD

Clinical Psychologist,

ABOUT

I provide individual counseling for a wide range of issues as well as parental guidance and support.

Parenting or working with children can be a fulfilling, wonderful experience. But often it is confusing, difficult, and frustrating. Even with the best intentions, it’s overwhelming when parenting efforts seem to fail over and over again. Parents are surprised and filled with guilt when they can’t find their love for their children, lose control, or just want to just give up.

I can help. Along with a doctorate in psychology (Psy.D.), I have over 20 years of combined personal and professional experience working with parents, educators, mental health professionals, children and adolescents. I specialize in the challenging child, anxiety, aggression, cultural adjustment, learning and behavior issues in children and adolescents. I provide individual counseling and personalized parenting consultations as well as educational courses and workshops to individuals and groups in person, online, and by phone.

Through my private practice, I support individuals and help parents and educators deepen their attachments with their children and students, as well as understand their developmental needs.  My goals include helping individuals deal with the challenges of life and to give parents and educators the guidance needed to raise responsible and caring children without becoming overwhelmed by this often confusing and seemingly daunting task.
