For loved ones and family, I welcome you as well to work on a life challenge.
I have 30 years of experience working in the field of mental health. For the past 20 years I have focused specifically on helping children, teens and parents better understand the gifts and needs of differently wired people. I seek to understand a person's sensory needs, social emotional needs and relating style. This discovery process attunes families to their children, whether young or grown. it provides older children, teens and adults a better appreciation of their gifts and insight into past struggles. And most importantly, it points to a way forward in life

Through agencies like CALM and Family Service Agency, I've worked with clients recovering from trauma, those adapting to the challenges of co-parenting, teens navigating new social environments, caretakers of aging loved ones, and individuals experiencing anxiety and depression through life transitions.
Are you experiencing emotional pain that has become too amplified to sustain in silence? Perhaps the burdens you have been carrying for so long are finally too heavy to manage alone. Unresolved past experiences, loss, dysfunctional relationships, and negative self-criticism can hinder our ability to recover from the difficulties life throws our way. Let’s work together to create a therapeutic relationship built on hope and trust.

I am trained in Family Therapy and although not always the case, therapy often moves faster when you are willing to include other family members as a part of therapy at some point. It helps me understand you in the broader context of the people that are important to you or have influence in your life.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Santa Barbara or for a Santa Barbara family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Santa Barbara using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
