My name is Dr. Michelle Yarmus Pearlman and I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with kids.  I also am lucky enough to be the mom of two very special kids of my own.  While being a mom is no question the most important and rewarding thing imaginable, it also provides me with the humble realization that even years of training from top programs about how to work with children can not prepare you for the true work of motherhood.  So, while I will probably end up writing a lot on this site about proven parenting strategies and how to handle various problems facing our families,  please remember that I know that it’s not easy out there!

My goal for this site is to provide information about children, parenting, mental health, and other relevant issues.  Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or comments that you would like me to discuss here.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
