In addition to therapeutic conversations, (talk-therapy) I have a wide variety of engaging activities, (play-therapy) to choose from.
Once-upon-a-time none of us were parents and we didn't think much about how difficult that role could be. Fast forward to today and here you are searching for help with your child. Addictive technologies, teaching self-discipline, developing strategies for coping with change are challenging. Teaching life skills, and helping parents be more effective is what I've been doing since 1991. I'm what you might call a generalist in that I work with boys and girls of all ages and relate as easily to a six-year-old as to a sixteen-year-old.

I use a strength-based modality, play therapy, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), and other techniques when working with my clients.
Stressful encounters, complex life experience, academic stressors and more, can often cause college students, teens, and children to struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, inadequacy, body image issues, and negative self-talk. In my career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, I have had the opportunity to work closely with clients struggling with these kinds of challenges both at school and at home. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients thrive and flourish by equipping them with the tools and guidance they need to navigate daily stressors, grow their self care, and improve coping skills.

Play Therapy helps your child resolve their problems by using their own natural language.
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 Alternatively, they may turn inwards, becoming withdrawn.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.

***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 Unfortunately some of these coping mechanisms are outdated and no longer serve us, so we go about life just "getting by".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.

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.

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.

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 Menlo Park or for a Menlo Park 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.
