The families of South Orange County are under tremendous pressures; the stress can be compounded by those facing the challenges of a teen demonstrating behavioral or emotional issues. At times, the behavior of your teen may be so disruptive and worrisome that it risks the health and normal functioning of not only your teen, but your entire family. At times like this, you may benefit from partnering with me to guide you through a specialized adolescent assessment and determine necessary treatment for your child.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families as they work through a wide range of issues including traumatic experiences, parenting, first generation experiences, grief, depression, and anxiety.
If you are reading this, you have been contemplating potentially attending therapy. So, let’s answer THE question right off the bat- Why do people go to therapy? One way I like to put it is that people go to therapy when their mind and body are not connecting. For example- your mind wants to “move on” or “focus”, but your body is having all sorts of feelings. Sound a little familiar? Another reason one would come to therapy could be to regain some sense of control or to build self-trust with themselves.

Guidance from a professional outside of the current situation may provide necessary support to alleviate distress and find your path. To achieve this, I provide a warm and safe environment in which to explore areas of concern and strength. I believe our collaboration together will be key to face challenges and proceed with a more informed perspective.

As a parent I know there is no worse feeling than watching your child struggle and being helpless to stop it. Trying desperately to help and connect with them only to feel like they are moving farther away from you despite how much you love them. Ultimately, nothing is more painful than feeling like you have failed your child. In the end all parents want is for their children to be happy and healthy but often to a child or teenager, going to therapy can make them feel like they are a problem that needs to be fixed.

Toady's busy lifestyles confront us with many personal/professional challenges. Assuming multiple roles can impact our ability to meet the responsibilities of our daily lives. Financial stress, work/school responsibilities, relationship struggles and parenting problems can cause depression, anxiety, health concerns, anger, or alienation. Without an adequate support system, life stresses often seem insurmountable; the high cost of health care often discourages individuals from seeking outside help. I recogize the increasing need for affordable, competent, compassionate mental health care services. I believe in the healing process of psychotherapy, and offer flexible fees for those commited to doing the work.
