Hello! All of you is welcome here. Let me help you figure out how to heal, achieve goals, and have happier and more authentic relationships. You can do it! If your child is unhappy or unsuccessful, I'll help you better understand the problem, and find solutions. If you’re finding parenting hard, I am here to support you. I've taught anger management and helped people reduce anxiety and panic attacks. I am the divorced mom of a special needs daughter and a "typically developing" son. I enjoy helping children and teens having trouble in school or socially, divorcing families, special needs kids & families.

I have a playroom full of toys for kids, and a sand tray with zillions of miniatures. I like coaching parents or working with parent & child together. Sometimes family therapy is most effective. With adults, we can use mindfulness, motivational interviewing, Gestalt techniques, cognitive behavioral approaches, sand tray, &/or anger management techniques.

I also love helping new moms, victims of crime or trauma, chronically ill and elders. I pride myself on being able to empathize with anyone: all ages, languages & races. I speak moderately good Spanish. My office is 2 blocks from Lafayette BART. I have a sliding scale, and will soon be accepting MediCal insurance. Give me a call or send me an email!
