"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."

"The choice of a therapist is deeply personal, and can be difficult to make from the cursory information on a website. Thus, I recommend an introductory session, during which you and I can get to know each other and discuss how our work together can benefit you. I have come to see that talking about problems, while important, is not necessarily enough to solve them. Thus, I provide tools to get at the root of your troubles, techniques to understand and change them, and guidance to help you steer your course to a more joyful and fulfilling life."
