About

I've spent the last 20 years helping kids, teens, and families. If your child is struggling with worries, sadness, problems at school or home, or adjusting to difficult or scary life experiences (divorce, death, trauma), I can help! If you have exhausted all the parenting hacks you know and still feel in over your head, I've got you! I will work with you and your child to improve their ability to cope and your ability to support them. Your family's path to improving your quality of life starts with a call to me. Looking for quality therapy for a lower cost? Check out my associates Alexandria & Jonathan at TherapySoCal.com.
My associates and I specialize in pediatrics, trauma, and spiritually integrated therapy. Further, I am adoption competent. We offer treatment in several evidence based practices to address symptoms common to children, families, and traumatized adults such as EMDR, TF-CBT, and PCIT.
Together we will work to foster hope and healing for you, your child, and the entire family. My goal is to support you as you move from frustration, hurt, or despair to resilience and wholeness. We will find the best match to meet your needs, whether with myself or one of my associates.
