Growing up can be tough, and at times it might feel like everything you try when supporting your child isn't working, leaving you frustrated, tired and maybe even overwhelmed. I work to support children, teens and young adults as they work to conquer their current life obstacles and nurture their inner strengths.

As a parent, you just want to know that you’re doing a great job. We want something that feels like it should be simple: deep connections with our children, meeting their needs, creating beautiful memories, and preparing them to succeed as adults without sacrificing your own ambitions. The truth is that it’s really complicated to parent when chaos and distraction abound - whether it be the bigger social issues that add stress to your life like pandemics, political distrust, and the economy, or the household ones like conflict with your children, cell phones and technology, bullying, marital problems, or mental health issues.

I have provided services to individuals, children, adolescents and families from diverse racial, ethnic, spiritual and socio-economic backgrounds, as well as members of the LGBTQ Community.
I celebrate you in taking your first step, which is a huge strength. I believe that you are the expert of you. My goal is to create a safe space that is non-judgmental, inclusive and empowering where we can work collaboratively to achieve what success means to you. Seeking support during difficult times can be a challenge. It can make us feel like we can’t solve things on our own; or our family or cultural background has taught us that our lives are not meant to be shared. Life is an incredible journey that comes with experiences that shape who we are. Let's navigate the path together and find tools that help you overcome hurdles.

I have over 20 years of experience working with children and families: working on the frontline of CPS assessing risk and nurturing family resilience, working in adoption agencies to help families create and maintain lifelong connections, and providing in-home therapeutic parenting services to struggling families.
I imagine you're here because you feel like something needs to change. It's reassuring to know it's never too late to ignite curiosity about what's happening, develop closer, healthier family connections, and learn to assert yourself more successfully as a parent. It takes courage to let go of what's limiting you to make room for a happier life. I can support you and your child(ren) through this process by identifying, understanding, and reworking ineffective patterns and building new skills to reduce conflict and create a better life for your family.

For children, play and art are a vital part of the therapy process.
The search for a therapist often begins at the point when the pain and struggle outweigh the capacity to cope on your own. Whether the search for a therapist is for yourself or your child, to work on a specific challenge or to work through years of challenges, finding relief from the pain and struggle and a path for growth is often the end goal. My intention is to function as a compassionate guide to find the answers within you, perhaps buried under stress and trauma responses which allowed you to survive to this point in your journey.

If your child struggles with peers, attention, school, or mood/ anxiety, I can provide a comprehensive neuropsychological assessment to help you learn what is going on and what next steps to take. This assessment answers questions related to concerns for ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, or medical conditions. The goal is to figure out how to best support your child! In some cases, your child may already have an IEP or 504, but you feel they are not getting all the support they need or you do not understand the results. In these cases, a comprehensive evaluation may help.

I specialize in working with anxiety in children (ages 4-12), teens, and adults.
Do you have a hard time putting yourself first? Do you find yourself walking on eggshells in your relationships? Are you a worrier? Do those worries and negative thoughts interfere constantly with your daily life? You may feel like your brain never stops, even waking up in the middle of the night with a million thoughts in your head. You might find yourself replaying situations from yesterday or from 10 years ago obsessing about what went wrong. You often get stuck in a never-ending loop of anxiety and guilt. It’s exhausting, frustrating, and overwhelming!

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Sacramento, CA provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Sacramento build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
