Children face so many struggles and challenges today. Some may be experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral issues, while some may be experiencing a stressful life transition such as a move, adoption, or a loss. And yet some may be distressed without a known stressor. I provide a safe space for children to explore their struggles and identify attainable solutions.

I have extensive training and experience with Play Therapy and Family Therapy. This expertise has allowed me to be an integral part of the healing that occurs when both the family and child are given the opportunity to work together on problems in a safe, non-judgmental, and empowering environment.

I have been married for 30 years, have one adult child and one teenager, so I can empathize with struggles in marriage and parenting teens.
NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS. Many people seek therapy when their coping skills no longer work or when relational issues cause continual heartache. Coming from past negative childhood experiences, I became a therapist to help individuals in their journey of discovering inner courage, strength and awareness of who they were created to be. My approach is Humanistic/Experiential while integrating Attachment Therapy, Internal Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral therapies. I offer a client centered, empathetic, safe, non-judgmental environment working towards a greater sense of wholeness and inner freedom, offering hope and coping skills.

What type of Los Alamitos mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Los Alamitos?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
