"Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing."

"I am the owner of Santa Cruz Child Therapy, a practice specializing in helping children, adolescents and parents overcome traumatic stress, relational issues, attachment trauma, and behavioral concerns. When your child is behaving in a way that is unusual or concerning, it can feel extremely distressing as a parent. Young people often display behavioral concerns that do not necessarily match the underlying feeling or root cause, making things feel even more confusing. It is my goal to work collaboratively with you to understand your child fully and utilize inherent strengths within your relationship to attend to both of your needs."
