About

As a mother of two children myself, I understand the barriers and fears that parents can face before, during, and after seeking treatment for their kids. Since my clients are primarily children, my philosophy is to work closely with their parents. I have learned that collaborating with the parents and the family as a whole can greatly improve a child’s quality of life.
My approach to counseling is behavior-focused. My specialties are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), both of which emphasize exploring patterns of behavior and overcoming negative thoughts and feelings so that behaviors improve. I am currently taking Play Therapy classes at UC San Diego and will soon be a licensed
Whether your child is suffering from anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or any other mental health issues, feel free to contact me to schedule a free, 15-minute consultation. My practice is based out of the CBT Treatment Center located in Manhattan Beach, but I offer online therapy services for children within the greater Los Angeles.
