Life can get hard. If you are struggling with anxiety or panic, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help you get back on track. From the first session, you can expect to develop real, long-term solutions so that you can feel better, be more productive, and find yourself again.

Life can feel chaotic. Whether you are considering your first time in treatment, continuing or returning to treatment, my goal is to provide you with the platform and skills to effectively evaluate, identify and create solutions to help you. It’s important to remember that therapy is not always about ‘fixing’ a problem. Sometimes, it is about learning how to work with the problem by creating awareness, strengthening insight, developing or broadening skills you already have. It is a joint effort between the therapist and the client, working together, to impact change and bring balance to what may otherwise feel out of control.

Through my experience in working with children, adolescents and their families, I have found that the most effective way to provide treatment is to do so in a non-judgmental, caring and warm environment. I use various modalities to work with the whole family unit and not just the child in dealing with the child's behavior and diagnosis. This eclectic approach to treatment include: CBT, EMDR, Love & Logic, Mindfulness, Creative Therapy, Parent Training and Play Therapy. Every child is unique and therefore, every treatment approach is specialized for that child’s unique experience.

Do you need support navigating through the many stages, changes and challenges of your child's development? I am passionate about supporting children, teens and families navigate through the challenges of their social/emotional development. My background in mental health and early childhood education allows me to help children and teens who struggle with anxiety, self-regulation, anger, depression, special needs, challenging behavior, self-esteem issues, and trauma. I use play therapy to help children express their needs and resolve their challenges when words are difficult. Play therapy is a child's natural way of communicating.

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 San Diego or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in San Diego, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in San Diego.
