Dr. Kingdon strives to understand each child and family from an integrative approach, taking into account the impact of the child’s temperament and psychobiological factors, parent-child relationships, family dynamics, social factors, and potential stressors on the family.  She aims to build a warm, empathic and collaborative therapeutic environment and to develop a treatment plan that maximizes each child’s potential.
