It's hard being a kid these days. Children and teens often act out because they are distressed. Alternatively, they may turn inwards, becoming withdrawn. As a parent, you may have a sense of what the problem is. It’s okay if you’re not quite sure, though. Through therapy, we can uncover the root cause of your child’s emotional and behavioral challenges. We can work through those issues to support your youngster in positive development. And don't worry - if play isn't for you, I also specialize in more traditional approaches to therapy.

Welcome! As a Mexican immigrant, I understand the cultural, linguistic, and other difficulties that immigrants face. Before working as a therapist, I worked as an elementary school teacher for over twenty years, so I have extensive experience helping children, parents, and families work through diverse issues including academic struggles, socialization difficulties, and familial problems.

Welcome! As you’re looking at this site, you may be wondering if therapy can be helpful for you, your family, or your child. You or your teen or child may be feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, irritable, or losing sleep. You may be struggling to connect or experiencing conflict in relationships. Your teen or child may be feeling self-critical or anxious in social situations, struggling in school, or dealing with a transition, loss, or parents’ divorce. Together, we'll work to reduce stress, anxiety, or depression, improve relationships, and decrease negative thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors.

***NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** Life is a journey full of ups and downs. It doesn't come with a roadmap, and at times we all find ourselves in difficult situations. As your therapist, I will guide you and support you through these rough times by illuminating the path to healing and wholeness. In the face of life's challenges, our tendency is to cope, adapt and get by. Unfortunately some of these coping mechanisms are outdated and no longer serve us, so we go about life just "getting by". Rather than merely "surviving" you could be thriving.

I invite clients to explore their deep values and motivations, and identify which aspects of their lives help them move forwards, and how to separate from patterns of behavior that are no longer useful. If you or you child suffer from anxiety, panic, phobias, mood issues, trauma and relationship issues don't give up. There is hope, and healing is possible.

Sometimes it takes the gentle mirroring of another person to help see what is no longer working in our lives. Habits formed to survive difficult childhoods may be wrecking havoc. Communication styles may be sabotaging love. We may feel overwhelmed in parenting, or facing a big life transition. I work closely with my clients to increase communication skills and develop greater personal awareness. I teach nervous system regulation in order to stay calm and effective during conflict, difficult conversations, and life transitions. From therapy you’ll learn to operate from wholeness and authenticity, and gain acceptance for self/others.

Relationships can be hard. Partners struggle with communication, conflicting parenting styles, sexual expressions... Life's challenges, hurtful fights, history of trauma or infidelity make it difficult to sustain trust and closeness. How can you create desired connections, and not lose yourself in the process? How can you be true both to self and to your partnership? I invite you to explore these questions together with empathy and curiosity, letting go of habitual judgments, self-deprecation, and shame. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Both traditional and alternative lifestyles are welcome, and no issue is a taboo.

As life unfolds, it often presents challenges that require us to adjust and adapt. Good therapy facilitates a clearer understanding of the obstacles and how to overcome them to create the life we want. My approach is empathic and intellectually curious and collaborative, always keeping your goals in mind. My clients describe me as warm, active, nonjudgmental, direct, and a gifted listener. I am also highly attuned to children and teens, and have developed strong relationships with even the most "difficult to reach" kids. I've watched relationships with family members, peers, and teachers shift and become less problematic.

When coping styles or life experiences challenge our ability to navigate the world, we often need a guide to help get a different perspective and learn new skills. Chronic distressful emotions/stress, burnout, negative inner dialogue, communication and relationship problems, problematic conflict styles, unmet needs/desires, trauma symptoms, and other difficulties lead to emotional distress and disease. Decode your emotions, manage stress/anxiety, cultivate wisdom, move from depression to finding your passion, resolve grief/trauma and help reclaim your joy, transform unhealthy habits, improve relationships while focusing on what's meaningful for a lifetime of self-awareness and acceptance.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in 94025 or for an 94025 play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 94025 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 94025. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 94025
