While I love helping others my greatest joy in life is being a parent .
I started my practice in 1994 with a desire to help people through their difficult situations. As a father my heart goes out to children. I strive to meet people where they are and help them become the best they can be. The majority of my practice is made up of children and teens but I also work with a number of adults and couples. It is important to note not everyone is ready to face their struggles or change their situation. While I would like to help everyone the person must be ready and motivated for therapy to be effective.

We are accepting new clients. Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Are you unsure how to get the life you want? Are you the parent of a child or teen and you can see that they are struggling? Sometimes negative thinking, anxious thoughts, unhealthy relationship patterns, previous traumas, (or something else) holds us back from reaching our true potential. It's during these times, that it's difficult to see your value and the strengths you bring to yourself and others. It doesn't have to stay this way. Therapy is an opportunity for you to work with someone to get the life you have always wanted - and to feel good again!

Is your teen or pre-teen struggling and you know they need help, but you are not sure where to start? Would you like them to talk to someone who specializes in adolescents? I can help your child and your family get through the rough patches. I help with a wide variety of teen and pre-teen issues including depression, anxiety, school attendance, substance abuse and family conflict. I also have expertise and experience working with transgender and gender non-conforming youth, and helping parents and families through the transition experience from a gender positive approach. If you are a parent and you are here looking for help, I know already that you are your child’s advocate. You are in your child’s corner. That support is a powerful force in their life, and so important for resilience, but when your child is struggling it can be so scary and so hard to know what to do. With grown kids of my own, I’ve been there as a parent through the rocky times too. I can help. Give me a call.

Therapy will also increase positive behaviors, problem-solving skills, self-worth, communication, anger-management and parenting skills .

If this sounds like you or someone you know, then I can help. I can provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment that allows us to work together, using your natural strengths to find answers, increase your sense of well-being and life functioning.

*Currently accepting in-person and telehealth clients* As a parent , you can't help but worry about your child or teen. Tantrums, arguments with teachers or peers, and growing defiance are making you worry. You're doing the best you can, but it still doesn't seem like enough. This leaves you feeling frustrated, lost and alone.

Parenting a child who has been through a trauma or unwanted transition takes courage, stamina, wisdom and support! We are Family & Children's Counseling Services and we want to help families heal play and love.
When our children's hearts have been broken, our hearts break, too. Parents often struggle with knowing how to care for a hurting child: when or how much to comfort; when or if to discipline, how to set appropriate boundaries,, the list goes on. The child's behaviors can be challenging. A parent 's own unhealed wounds get triggered. Then, there's the parenting guilt! It can be overwhelming. We understand and we are here to help.

I understand the joys and challenges of being both a spouse and parent .
We as people are all broken on some level, but we don’t need to stay that way. Depending upon the cards we have been dealt in life, what’s been done to us, and what we’ve done to ourselves, many of us develop fractures in our view of the world. These “fractures” affect how we view ourselves and our relationships. No matter what you are going through at this stage in life, you don’t need to struggle alone. There is hope! Whether you’re dealing with relationship issues, career problems, abuse, anxiety, depression, or self-destructive habits, change is possible. I believe that every person has the capacity to heal, grow, and change!

I offer you a 'strength based' therapy. I use support, introspection, assessment, direction and referral as a way to bring change to your life. We all experience loss, doubt, changes in our life beyond our control. For some people 'Therapy' is a place to re-charge. For others is it a vital experience needed to explore core issues ( trauma ) and re-organize their sense of self and move forward. I believe I offer a safe place online for you to grow. NO OFFICE SESSIONS. I enjoy working on issues of anxiety, depression, relationships and parenting . I am a survivor of the Camp Fire and feel qualified to work with other survivors.
