Dr. Siegel conducts comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults. She also provides individual psychotherapy to children and adolescents with a range of presenting concerns, including attention and executive functioning challenges, emotional regulation difficulties, and social skills deficits. Her approach is informed by psychodynamic theory, but she also employs cognitive-behavioral, relational, and play therapy techniques. Dr. Siegel believes that meeting children where they are and allowing them to direct their experience is the hallmark of growth and change.
