Seasoned clinical-school child psychologist Dr. Lynne Goldstein, a specialist in issues related to bullying and self-esteem, opened her own practice in Westport, CT, offering individual therapy, therapy for children and families experiencing divorce, psycho-educational evaluations, and therapy for gifted children and their families.
With a doctorate degree in school-clinical child psychology, experience as a teacher in mainstream and special education classes, and more than 10 years dedicated to working as a school psychologist in New York, Connecticut, and San Francisco, Dr. Lynne Goldstein was more than qualified to open her own practice. At the end of June, the licensed clinical-child psychologist did just that in Westport.
"After years of working with children, I feel very dedicated to their success," says Goldstein. "I wanted to be able to help these children and families privately." In addition to seeing private patients individually and as a family, Goldstein offers psycho-educational evaluations, works with families of divorce as well as families with gifted children, and focuses on fostering self-esteem in children and young adults.
Related to her work on finding out what makes kids feel good about themselves, Goldstein is one of four co-creators of "Kool to be Kind." An anti-bullying program that compliments her work with the Anti-Defamation League, "Kool to be Kind" trains high school students to go into 3rd grade classrooms to teach them about kindness and standing up against bullying.
The new practice is located at 181 Post Road in Westport. For more information or to make an appointment, call 917-822-8743 or email [email protected].
