Monica Adimari Fyfe, MS, MFT, BCBA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Redondo Beach
If you are a parent of a child who is newly diagnosed, or is struggling to help your child decrease maladaptive behaviors and increase their strengths and developmental skills, I am here for you and your family! My approach ensures that each child's goals and intervention plans are individualized, collaborative, respectful of the client's developmental stage, strength-building for family systems and skill building for all types of needs including: self-management and self-regulation, social skills, behavior modification, self-esteem, coping skills, anger management, depressive and anxiety symptoms.
What makes my practice unique and special, is my combination of Non-Directive, Client-Centered Play therapy techniques and Direct Behavioral Interventions. I have training in both Play Therapy and Applied Behavior Analysis. I am also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
This combination helps me address your family's needs more fully and provides your child a special opportunity to communicate their feelings safely through the vehicle of play.
