It's hard being a kid these days. Children and teens often act out because they are distressed. Alternatively, they may turn inwards, becoming withdrawn. As a parent, you may have a sense of what the problem is. It’s okay if you’re not quite sure, though. Through therapy, we can uncover the root cause of your child’s emotional and behavioral challenges. We can work through those issues to support your youngster in positive development. And don't worry - if play isn't for you, I also specialize in more traditional approaches to therapy.

Stressful encounters, complex life experience, academic stressors and more, can often cause college students, teens, and children to struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, inadequacy, body image issues, and negative self-talk. In my career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, I have had the opportunity to work closely with clients struggling with these kinds of challenges both at school and at home. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients thrive and flourish by equipping them with the tools and guidance they need to navigate daily stressors, grow their self care, and improve coping skills.

I am particularly effective in working with bright and highly sensitive teens. During this pandemic, I believe that our most perceptive, sensitive adolescents are having the biggest mental health challenges with not seeing friends, family, and teachers on a more regular basis. I have extensive experience as a School Counselor in both private and public schools in the SF Bay Area. I also have designed and taught Social and Emotional Learning at several private schools. My ideal client is a teen facing the obstacles of anxiety, depression, learning challenges or social skills challenges at school or home.

My clinical approaches include Neurodevelopmental Art Therapy (NDAT) with bilateral restructuring, Mindfulness-Based Art Therapy (MBAT) with breathing and meditation techniques, and the metaphor-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also teach mindful self-compassion which is strongly predictive of well-being, and lower levels of anxiety and depression. The emotional right brain is dominant in all forms of psychotherapy which is especially true in child and adolescent therapies. Therapeutic change happens when there is trust and connection between therapist and client in a safe, supportive, and judgment-free environment.

My practice is focused on neuropsychological and educational assessment of children and adolescents. Evaluations are individualized for every child, but commonly test for learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and other mental health conditions (depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, etc.). Regardless of any diagnostic labels, assessments seek to illuminate your child’s strengths, identify areas of challenge, and provide specific, evidence-based recommendations to support their success in school and beyond.

Once-upon-a-time none of us were parents and we didn't think much about how difficult that role could be. Fast forward to today and here you are searching for help with your child. Addictive technologies, teaching self-discipline, developing strategies for coping with change are challenging. Teaching life skills, and helping parents be more effective is what I've been doing since 1991. I'm what you might call a generalist in that I work with boys and girls of all ages and relate as easily to a six-year-old as to a sixteen-year-old.

As life unfolds, it often presents challenges that require us to adjust and adapt. Good therapy facilitates a clearer understanding of the obstacles and how to overcome them to create the life we want. My approach is empathic and intellectually curious and collaborative, always keeping your goals in mind. My clients describe me as warm, active, nonjudgmental, direct, and a gifted listener. I am also highly attuned to children and teens, and have developed strong relationships with even the most "difficult to reach" kids. I've watched relationships with family members, peers, and teachers shift and become less problematic.

We all make compromises as children to survive effectively in the families in which we grow up. Much of the work I do with people in therapy involves helping them realize the nature of those compromises and making a determination as to whether the choices they had to make as children continue to be the most effective course for them as adults. I help people have insight into their behavior in relationships at work, with friends and family so that they may decide what aspects of these interactions they want to keep and which they may want to modify.

If life were simple, there would be less need for confessional booths, principals' offices and psychotherapy. Things happen along the way, get set aside, accumulate and catch up. Some "stuff" gets passed from one generation to the next. Many people delay indefinitely effectively dealing with difficulties, pass them on to others or deny they exist entirely. When you are ready to sort through such matters give me a call. I am curious, patient and enjoy helping others move forward.
