My role is to help your child or teen understand and communicate their feelings.
You want good things for your child: to feel confident, communicate well, make good friends, and succeed academically. You want to enjoy being with them without frustration or worry. But it can be so hard when a child struggles with fear, sadness or low self-esteem. It is discouraging when they refuse to follow directions or if they often have an attitude. Many parents feel helpless as they try to help their child or relate to their teenager.

My approach focuses on working collaboratively with the teen/young adult towards enhancing their sense of self, identifying strengths and achieving their full potential.
I strive to create a warm, supportive therapeutic environment where you feel heard and understood. I believe the safety of the therapeutic relationship allows you to engage in meaningful exploration of the issues that are impacting your wellbeing. I offer emotionally-focused therapy to help you increase insight and awareness, strengthen relationships, and gain the confidence and skills you need to live well. Therapy is a collaborative process and my role is to empower you to achieve your goals. I have experience helping clients with concerns related to anxiety, depression/sadness, self-esteem, relationships, difficult transitions, grief and trauma.

In working with children and their families, I have developed experience with infants, parent-infant play and feeding interactions, teen pregnancy and teen parenting, court-ordered or volunteer parenting groups, academic concerns and IEP advocacy, pervasive developmental disorders and Regional Center advocacy, crisis counseling, divorce, couples, adults and family work.
Is it ever difficult to understand your child's behavior or your teen's angst? Do they speak a language or behave in a way you find challenging? Children from infancy through adolescence can seem unmanageable at times causing parents to feel overwhelmed and powerless. Why continue struggling? If your child is having a difficult time at home, in school, or with friends, I can offer insights and recommendations as well as provide a safe space for everyone to learn respectful, meaningful communication directed toward positive change. Let me help you and your family get there together.

Do you get stuck in cycles of negative thinking? Does it sometimes feel like your mind is working against you? Do you find it tough to turn off damaging self-talk and self-blame? This perpetual self-punishment can give rise to and worsen already challenging conditions like depression and anxiety, as well as sustain the effects of trauma.

Do you feel like you have done a lot of self-work and there's still something left that is not going anywhere? OR have you experienced one or multiple difficult events in your life that are simply too hard to overcome on your own? It really doesn't matter whether it happened as a child, teen, or adult, these experiences feel real and sometimes as if they are still happening right now. You see, we tend to embody them, meaning our body stores them and when we get "triggered" by a sounds or touch, for example, we are reminded of something that happened to us, which we have not yet fully processed. You and I can work through that!

Are you seeking help for a child or teen who is struggling emotionally, displaying challenging behaviors, experiencing difficulties in school or in personal relationships? I have over 30 years experience treating children exposed to trauma, whether from family conflict, divorce, exposure to violence, bullying, alienation, accidental injury, or abuse. When children experience trauma, they can become detached from their bodies, numbed to emotion, and stuck in repetitive trauma memories. The work (and play) of therapy is to assist them in reconnecting to those parts of their Self that have "shut down" so that the process of healing can begin.

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Therapists
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a Los Angeles adolescent therapist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent therapists in Los Angeles, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.
