My Background & Experience

Annye Rothenberg My lifelong interests have been how children develop, how unique each child is, and how to help them if they're having hard-to-solve problems. I also care enormously about how having and raising children affects parents and affects each parent differently. My goal is always how to help parents help their kids. My expertise is babies through ten-year-olds with mild to moderate behavioral, social, and/or emotional problems.
