Speaking the language of children , I use play and creativity to support your child to regain their joy and confidence, build resilience, heal hurts, strengthen relationships, and improve behavior concerns.
Children are uniquely wonderful...and also complex and confusing! It’s normal to feel overwhelmed at times as a parent. You’re constantly trying to figure out why your child is behaving the way they are...and what on earth to do about it. What worked last week is definitely not working today. What worked for a friend hasn’t worked for you with your child . You’re absolutely devoted to your little one and want to help them...but you don’t know what to do or where to turn. You wish you could discover the secret to unravel this mystery. Will things always be this hard for you and the child you love so much?

In therapy, I utilize a variety of evidence-based interventions to assist with the problems life throws at you, while also being cognizant of your pace to make therapy a place where you feel safe and confident.

I work with individuals, adolescents, and children with a focus on anxiety, depression, anger-management, trauma, and grief-and loss.
In life we go through many changes, obstacles, and unforeseen events that leaves us unsure and confuse about the future. At times, we are left with the inability to change our situations and feel "stuck." However, by changing our perspective/views we can change how we process our worlds, and thus, changing how we respond, and ultimately feeling in control. I implement a wide variety of therapy techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy, Client-Centered, Solution Focused and adjust based on Clients uniqueness and goals. I approach therapy with an understanding that we are all unique in our experiences.

If your child is displaying temper tantrums, depression, anxiety, clinginess, hyperactivity, impulsivity, aggression, defiance, or any other challenging behaviors, then seeking professional help may be a great next-step for you and your family. Disruptive behaviors can lead to familial/ marital distress, increased parental distress, and can negatively impact a child ’s ability to learn and develop meaningful connections with others. Early intervention is essential to helping young minds thrive, and it’s not too late to get the help your family needs. Evidenced-based services are available to support your family's journey to wellness.

My goal is to provide a safe, fun, and comfortable environment where individuals, children and adolescents, can explore their feelings and overcome their challenges, whatever they may be.
Everyone has core beliefs that are often formulated at an early age, and can refer to a cognitive construct such as "I don't belong" or "people can't be trusted." When someone is anxious the core belief of "I am a failure" could be activated. When activated these beliefs are experienced by the individual as absolute truths. Although we may "believe" them,the good news is these thoughts are largely false beliefs and can be overcome to fit who you value yourself to be and the purpose you see fit for your life.

Helping children , adolescents, and their families is important to me. Having spent 17 years working with children in educational settings, I understand the struggles families face when dealing with behavioral and social issues, poor academic performance, learning disabilities, and mental health issues. Families may be faced with unexpected challenges such as loss of a loved one, loss of a job, or divorce. Not being able to help your child or teen with problems they face, or not being able to bring your family together as a loving unit can be frustrating and disheartening as a parent.

I specialize in providing therapy for children , adolescents, adults, couples & families, and parenting classes.
We as human beings are impacted by the experiences of our lives even from before birth to present. Sometimes, some of these experiences are so destructive that make us feel trapped, without knowing what to do. In turn, these feelings negatively alter the way we relate to others and ourselves and produce symptoms of depression; anxiety; insecurity; panic attacks; and compulsive, controlling, aggressive or abusive behaviors. All these symptoms are defensive reactions and indicative that something, deep inside us is not well and that we need help.

I specialize in helping children , adolescents, and adults.
It takes great courage to reach out for help. Needing help is not a bad thing. Sometimes we experience situations that lead to heartache and pain, frustration, anger, unforgiveness, sadness, grief, and on and on. Our situations can seem hopeless at times, and we need another perspective to help us realize that we CAN make it through, and that we ARE strong enough to overcome. My goal is to help you get to the root of the issues and challenges that you are experiencing, whether it be anxiety, depression, behavior problems, etc., so that you can move on to enjoying your life to the fullest.

What type of Riverside 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 Riverside?
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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
