Are you looking for a local therapist who specializes in children and teens? Does your son or daughter seem anxious, sad/depressed or withdrawn? Has your child been struggling in school or with social relationships? I would love to help. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and families. I believe that effective therapy is based on a trusting relationship that empowers and makes space for positive change. My experience includes academic/school problems, behavioral issues, anxiety/depression, grief and loss, and social skills deficits. My approach is strength-based and non-pathologizing while highlighting your child's natural assets.

Do you worry if she is making the right choices? As a parent, you want the best for your child. Perhaps it was easier when they were younger. Now that she is a teenager, things are more difficult. These days the world is complicated. Children are influenced by their peers, the internet, and the media. Maybe you are feeling like you used to have a close relationship and now your teen is more distance. Many parents who come to see me ask "Why is she so angry?" At times you may feel like you don't know what to do?

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Inadequate, anxious, or disconnected? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or exhausting than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

Parenting your teen has nearly destroyed you. Their anger, depression, and self-destruction has devastated your entire family. Most days, you're barely hanging on by a thread. Your instinct is to protect, yet nothing you do seems to help. You feel alone and helpless. You're obsessing, hovering, and constantly questioning their state of mind. "What does she have to be depressed about?" "I don't understand; he has everything he needs." "Why would they do that?" You're expected to remain strong and contain your worst fears as you watch them unravel in self-defeat.

Change - "Why do I need to change, how can I manage change, but I have always done it this way." Novelist and critic Marcel Proust talks about discovery and "learning to see with new eyes". I am an MFT and CADC II using cognitive behavior techniques to manage thoughts, feelings and behavior in my client centered practice. I believe change is not something to fear but something to embrace. I work with life transitions and the changes it brings to relationships, employment, religious beliefs, life stages and I am certified in Addiction Counseling.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Valencia, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Valencia listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
