"I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive."

"Are you tired from staying hidden and playing small? Do you find yourself wanting to show up in a way that feels more authentic and congruent to you, but you don’t know how? Maybe you feel like you’re too sensitive and you’ve been spending a lot of energy trying not to be that way. Imagine what it could be like to live in sync with your story, your emotions, and your body. You would be able to take up space confidently, to honor your needs, and to live from a place of integration and connection. "

"From time to time I am honored to be asked some variant of the question, "What should I look for in choosing a therapist?" That is actually a pretty deep philosophical question and it is of vital importance as well. Out of respect for your time I will give you the short version, "Look for wisdom". People are usually expecting an answer like "high intelligence" or "vast knowledge" but while those characteristics are very important, the possible limitations of that giftedness set are obvious when you think of, for example, the large percentage of white collar criminals who possess it."

"I view therapy as a gift you give to yourself. It is a secured time and place for you to pause, reflect and gain perspective. Therapy entails building a relationship with someone who is there for you fully, to listen to your thoughts and feelings and join you in your process of discovering what you want and need and how to get there. I find that people often seek therapy at times of transition in their lives.

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 Pasadena or for a Pasadena 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?
