I provide therapy for children and adults. I am very experienced with children who are having behavior problems like tantrums, aggression, defiance or school refusal. I also provide play therapy for younger children who have been through traumatic events like divorce, domestic violence, loss of a parent, or other very upsetting circumstances. For adults, I can help with depression, anxiety, anger and stress. I have also helped clients to successfully deal with post traumatic stress and obsessive compulsive problems. To contact me, please call me on my phone at 805-901-3098, I don't check my e-mail that often.
Older children with anxiety, depression, anger problems or low self esteem will also benefit from my services. Young people definitely require a different approach than adults and I have found successful ways to adapt the principles of effective therapy to this age group.
I also see adults for stress management and for post traumatic problems related to accidents, injuries or crime. Among my personal and professional interests are meditation and mindfulness, relaxation techniques and stress reduction, and men's issues.
