Sometimes we need extra help when facing particularly painful, overwhelming, or puzzling situations. By setting aside a dedicated time and place in which to bring your full attention (and mine) to the task of sorting out what pains or blocks you, you give yourself the best opportunity to craft the life you wish to live. In the company of a skilled practitioner, the process of therapy can help you work through old patterns and address the challenges at hand. You can experience a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace in your life and in your relationships.

Why go to therapy or pursue inner work? It's a great question because the act of creating a weekly ritual to reflect on yourself is actually a subversive thing to do. Something you discover may reorient your life. Maybe what you originally thought was a problem is more precisely a sign relaying information that could help you love more deeply, live more freely, and be less (and amazingly more) like everyone else. I welcome individuals who have experienced trauma, a difficult relationship to their body, high sensitivity, intuitive abilities, and/or an unwieldy mind. I specialize in supporting new and seasoned spiritual practitioners.

I am the owner of Santa Cruz Child Therapy, a practice specializing in helping children, adolescents and parents overcome traumatic stress, relational issues, attachment trauma, and behavioral concerns. When your child is behaving in a way that is unusual or concerning, it can feel extremely distressing as a parent. Young people often display behavioral concerns that do not necessarily match the underlying feeling or root cause, making things feel even more confusing. It is my goal to work collaboratively with you to understand your child fully and utilize inherent strengths within your relationship to attend to both of your needs.
