I am licensed in both California and Ohio and offer psychotherapy and parent coaching.
Creating a successful family is the greatest challenge any of us face. So often when our kids enter the teenage years, the dynamics suddenly change. The son or daughter who used to be a part of the family can seem like a different person. The old activities, conversations and rules are different and then journey of raising a teenage begins. As a therapist, high school teacher, and group leader, I have watched adolescents, their parents, and couples go through times of great struggle and come out the other side with a clearer sense of who they are in the world .

Parenting is hard. But parenting is REALLY hard when your child is struggling emotionally. You keep thinking your child is too young to be so anxious, angry, or sad. You want so badly to help them, but it feels like every attempt just makes things worse. It’s time to try something different. A trusted adult from outside the family circle can help your child better navigate the ups and downs of childhood.

In working with children and their families, I have developed experience with infants, parent-infant play and feeding interactions, teen pregnancy and teen parenting, court-ordered or volunteer parenting groups, academic concerns and IEP advocacy, pervasive developmental disorders and Regional Center advocacy, crisis counseling, divorce, couples, adults and family work.
Is it ever difficult to understand your child's behavior or your teen's angst? Do they speak a language or behave in a way you find challenging? Children from infancy through adolescence can seem unmanageable at times causing parents to feel overwhelmed and powerless. Why continue struggling? If your child is having a difficult time at home, in school, or with friends, I can offer insights and recommendations as well as provide a safe space for everyone to learn respectful, meaningful communication directed toward positive change. Let me help you and your family get there together.
