I strive to make therapy a safe space for you to feel, think, heal, and grow. As a psychologist, my desire it to listen deeply to you and cultivate your self-actualization. I commit to facilitate your treatment goals, such as developing better coping skills, building meaningful connections, and much more.

With children I use a combination of play , talk, and behavioral therapy.
As a child, adult, and couple's psychologist, my goal is to provide treatment with care and integrity. Children come in for school problems, behavioral problems or mood disturbances including anxiety. I provide support and coaching for parents along side the therapy for their children. Adults come to see me for desire to live with less pain, more peace. Couples engage in work to improve communication or manage a stress that is effecting the relationship. The therapeutic relationship is a powerful medium for change. Regardless of the reason for starting therapy, most people get tremendous relief.

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 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. 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.

Everyone is unique. Your thoughts, feelings and needs are shaped by your own background, family history, past interpersonal encounters and other significant events, including early child trauma. Psychotherapy is an emotional process. As we discuss your concerns, it will surface unexamined parts of your life of which you may not be aware or want to experience. My central role as your therapist is to help you talk about and understand more fully these unexamined thoughts, feelings, and needs in the context of your past, develop greater understanding, tolerance and acceptance, and to bring changes to your current situation.

I specialize in helping couples, families, and children. As human beings, we have a need to feel connected to a significant other who becomes like a safe haven and a source of security and comfort. This person helps us to face the world with confidence because we know there is someone who cares about us. When we feel disconnected from our attachment figure, we feel unprotected and life's challenges seem to be bigger and scarier. I help couples and families to feel secure in their relationship by strengthening their bond so that they become responsive, accessible and emotionally engaged with each other.

Hello and welcome! Working with youth & young adults is a passion of mine, as is supporting youth & caregivers in increasing their understanding of one another with the goal of strengthening child-caregiver relationships. I feel a particular pull to support young people in tuning into their internal voice so that they can build a strong sense of self-worth, & so that they are then able to navigate life transitions & all that comes with those transitions with that much more ease.

We all have the natural ability to heal and grow to our full potential.  In children and adolescents this ability is enormously powerful but can be disrupted by stress and obstacles, both internal and external.  ​You are probably seeking therapy for yourself or your child, to find a way to overcome these obstacles and move forward with healing and growth. For 20 years, I have helped children, adolescents and their families find the skills they need for healthy emotional development.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Foster City or for a Foster City play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
