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?

As a Prepare Enrich facilitator and Trainer, Pre-Marital, Marriage, & Parenting are an important part of my practice.
As a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist practicing in the Inland Empire, I have spent over 27 years blending my business consulting skills with extensive training in Family Systems therapy. I also specialize in acute trauma therapy. My heart is to bring freedom and wholeness to individuals and families. I am an Adjunct Professor at California Baptist University, where I teach graduate Psychology courses. My husband of 29 years and I joined our family after having both been widowed, so I know the challenges of a blended family. All three of our children are happily married with great careers & 7 awesome grandchildren.

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 take a client-center approach to counselling; facilitate co- parenting / parenting classes; and I am certified as a Parent Project Facilitator for strong willed children.
As you journey through life, you may find yourself in difficult times that may cause confusion, anxiety, or depression. You may experience difficulty with your spouse or partner, a child or teen, phase of life changes, or the loss of a loved one. It is during these times that you may need someone to talk to and to walk with you, to listen non-judgmentally, compassionately and with understanding - instilling hope and healing. My hope is to help you find your strengths, and have a deeper understanding of your gifts.

My specialities are family therapy, parent training, and working with victims of coercive control.
Aren't we all tired of hearing the word COVID-19 by now? It's been two years of cough-watch and virus alert, and we wish for nothing more than to get back to the way things used to be. Nothing's going right, finances are all over the place, and we just can't make life work out for us the way we really need it to. We are finding less hope and joy in activities we normally enjoy, or perhaps we find ourselves unable to stop worrying about everything, and nothing. Two years of repeated pandemic-related trauma is a big deal, and it is putting strain on all aspects of people's lives.

The parent consultation services I provide are individualized.
Online consultation provides a individualized person centered approach. Based on the values and the goals of the client behavioral strategies derived from acceptance commitment therapy, behavior skills training, and principles of Behavior Analysis are utilized. The approach I take when providing consultation is by first listening, observing, and then troubleshooting together. My philosophy is that the training is for you and not me; therefore, it is important for my teaching strategies to adapt and not just have me imposing my ideas in thoughts.

Parenting Therapists
In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
