"I have had over 10 years experience impacting the lives of children, adolescents and adults with emotional disturbances and often extensive trauma histories. The symptom presentation can range but often the cause is a mixture of biological factors and environmental stress combined with an inability to effectively process and deal with these stresses. I create meaningful working relationships, even when someone may be skeptical of the benefits of therapy. I then work collaboratively to improve coping skills and the ability to handle challenging situations with minimal to no impairment today and in the future."

"As a child therapist, I believe the most important part of therapy is the inclusion and education of the parents. Are your children struggling at school or at home with behavioral issues? Sibling rivalry? Divorce? Tantrums? Are you unsure if your parenting style is benefiting your child? Play therapy is a way of being with the child that honors their unique developmental level and looks for ways of helping in the "language" of the child - play. Working with children and closely with parents, I strongly believe that play therapy can make difficult times feel less painful and more manageable."

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in 90254 or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in 90254, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in 90254.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 90254 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 90254 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 90254 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 90254 or family therapy in 90254.
