If you were to put together a list of the most important people in your life, who would be on your list? We all live in relationships and when we are not in harmony with them this can cause anxiety, sadness, confusion, low self esteem and worth. Our core relationship is with our self. I invite you to take the journey inward, to explore, and learn how to bring out your greatest potential.

Currently accepting new clients! Sometimes life in general can feel overwhelming. This feeling can intensify if you also struggle with unprocessed trauma and/or feelings of low self-worth. My clients have either had a chaotic childhood or a single traumatic experience that has led to self-consciousness, self-sabotage or simply difficulty handling stress. They have so much compassion for others, yet struggle to turn it inward. They know the benefits of self-love/care, but find it difficult to stick to new habits or ways of thinking. The individuals I work with are hoping to find peace, stability and increased self-esteem.

In life, we often feel overwhelmed, out of control, or caught in patterns we can’t seem to escape. We may be affected by trauma, feel stuck in relationships, get caught in self defeating thought spirals or find that we are sabotaging ourselves. Many of us move around the world carrying secret struggles with negative thoughts, emotions, or urges, which disturb our day-to-day life and make waves in our relationships. Changing life circumstances-both positive (like the birth of a child) or negative (loss of a job)-can cause anxiety and strife.

Change is hard! Isn't the alternative worse? Life can be very challenging and demanding. It can even seem extremely overwhelming. The good news is you don't have to feel alone. Seeking help is a sign of courage and strength, which I foster in practice. I offer assistance in finding ways to manage your stressors in ways that work for you. Improving self-esteem, learning to cope, and managing emotions is all possible. I won’t promise it will be easy (therapy rarely is). But I can promise you, it will be worth it.

Change is an inevitable part of life. The lack of change or too much change can overwhelm us and derail our growth. No one escapes hardship and stress. During these times we need the trust, respect, and empathy of an impartial professional especially when family and friends are just too close to the matter. With more than 20 years of clinical practice, I've found that the healthier person reaches out for help beyond their immediate sphere. I see myself as a guide facilitating my patients' healthy risk taking and helping them manifest their visions for a better future.

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 Laguna Niguel or for a Laguna Niguel 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.
