Are you a parent struggling to have a better relationship with your child? Are you, or someone else (teachers, family) worried about your child's behavior? Are you or your family going through a difficult time? If so, you need a therapist with experience working with children, teens, and families. I am a Bilingual (Spanish) licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 14 years of experience specializing in working with children from ages 2 to 21. I have worked with children and their families dealing with a variety of issues including learning difficulties, ADHD, behavioral problems, anxiety, depression, and loss.
I can help kids in their transitions in school or in their home/families. As a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor I create a fun yet safe environment where children and teens can express their feelings and needs.
I believe that respect and understanding are the foundation to any therapeutic relationship. I assist individuals to identify their own goals and teach them the skills and practical solutions to relieve emotional or mental concerns and develop more fulfilling relationships.
