"I see myself as a holistic practitioner. Therapy with me involves working the body just as much as the mind. This can be challenging for some, but leads to long-term resolution and healing in a more complete, organic nature. Through Somatic Experiencing (SE), I have been trained to work specifically with trauma and the way in which our survival energy becomes trapped in our bodies. We embody our lived experience."

"Conflict, sadness, confusion, anger, grief, worry, shame, fear, phobias, nightmares: They can arise in our lives like scary monsters. Children, adolescents, and adults all experience these feelings as unwanted and unwelcome. What if, instead of pushing these feelings away, we listened to what they have to say to us? This might sound just too, too scary, but that's why I'm here! When an unknown part of ourselves looms like a monster in the closet, we must coax it out with patience and kindness. This is very difficult to do alone (especially for young people!) "

The therapeutic process is an organic one that involves a mutual exploration between myself and clients with the client's needs and purpose informing the process.

'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD Alameda County), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in Alameda County; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in Alameda County.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.
