Yasmine Moideen, Ph.D., LP

My specialty is in child psychology. I am a developmental psychology nerd, with a goal to understand the ever-changing brain at each stage of life and what this means for behavior and emotional difficulties. A child psychologist needs to have patience, insight, and the ability to intuit underlying fears and distress, because children are not always able to voice these concerns. In this way, a psychologist is a translator of the inner world of the child, someone who can create a bridge to a less chaotic and more joyful home life, school life, and social life. A particular area of interest is helping parents navigate the confusing and, sometimes, stormy world of parenting. I love getting to the bottom of meltdowns, anxiety, irritability, and hurdles in learning. I also love working with adults in individual therapy. The type of therapy I offer includes delving into one's history for the sake of gaining a better sense of self, to find more joy and meaning in your relationships and work. In my work with clients, I am usually described as warm, funny, pragmatic, and solution focused. 

My treatment approaches include cognitive behavioral therapy (assessing and changing environmental triggers and thoughts contributing to a problem), play therapy (using play as a medium for therapy), and family systems therapy (assessing and changing family dynamics). Another area of expertise is psychological testing with children and adolescents in order to assess for ADHD, autism, learning difficulties, and other referral concerns. 

My family consists of my husband, college age twins (boy/girl), and our anxious cat who keeps us on our feet. I was born in India and grew up in Queens, NY and consider myself a midwestern girl at heart. I am a foodie who loves hole in the wall eateries and a warm bowl of ramen filled with perfectly cooked noodles and an underpoached egg. When I am not pretending to be a food critic, you can find me on the tennis court working on perfecting my topspin or hiking through densely forested, unpaved trails.
