It’s incredibly frustrating to know you, your child , or your family is on the wrong path but are unsure how to get on the right one. Even though you’re invested in bringing about real transformation in you or your family’s lives, you still can’t find a way to make the changes that are going to help you. We know you or your family can see things from a new perspective, learn to trust yourselves, and experience long-lasting change that each of you has control of.

If you are seeking support for your child , or even for yourself, I would be honored to walk with your family on this journey.
Parenting can be tough. You may find your mind filled with worries and self-doubt. “Am I repeating the same mistakes my parents made?” “I’m tired of the yelling, but what else am I supposed to do?” If these thoughts seem all too familiar, it may be time to get your child and yourself some support. All you want is for your child to feel confident, have good friends, and succeed in life, but this feels so far away. . In therapy, your child will learn to recognize their strengths, develop new skills, and learn ways to cope with difficult emotions.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been in private practice in Simi Valley for 15 years. I mostly work with children and adolescents struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, divorce, school-related difficulties and problematic behaviors. My belief is that the most essential factor when doing this type of work is to establish a sense of trust along with providing a therapeutic environment which is safe, secure, accepting and nonjudgmental. This conveys to the individual that they are respected for who they are which can lead to an increase in self-respect and respect for others.

After many years of experience with children and parents, my psychotherapy practice also includes play therapy with children , parent education, and couples therapy.
If you are feeling unfulfilled, stuck, anxious, sad or resentful, or if you find yourself continuing to react to external events in a pattern which does not bring you (or those around you) peace and harmony, the practice of Mindfulness can help reduce your habitual patterns of reactivity and guide you to a more harmonious and peaceful life. We will examine your present needs and personal goals, and together we will determine the best course of action. I highly respect your integrity and belief system, and we will work together to uncover the wisdom that lies within you.

You want to understand why you’re stuck, but more so, you want to learn how to move through it and grow. The hardest part is reaching out for someone to care – to find that you’re not alone in your pain and fear. The answers might seem far away and you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, wrestling with beasts of sadness, anxiousness, hopelessness, fear. Whether your relationship with your partner or child feels distant, or your view of yourself, your body, or your future seem bleak – you're ready to be un-stuck.

Do you experience stress/anxiety/panic/uncertainty/difficulty making decisions? Do you often worry about what others think of you/ replay conversations or events long after they have ended? Do you come up with plans that excite you; only to later talk yourself out of their pursuit? Do you look forward to an event, finding that once you are there you cannot wait for it to be over? Does your child experience stomach aches that have no medical basis or become rude when in social situations? Do you find your relationship patterns eerily mimicking those of your childhood? Are you enduring life's experiences rather than enjoying them?
