Every person has their own unique process of healing and growth. Psychotherapy is a valuable pathway towards finding balence and wholeness in your life. As your therapist, I approach my work with profound respect for your individual nature, values, and beliefs. Psychotherapy is essentially a collaborative process, in which we work together to explore the difficulties you're facing and to find solutions that will work for you. When the essence of your 'self' is truly understood, real possibilities for meaningful change can emerge. My goal is to support your journey as you move towards a more fulfilling and authentic life.

Through telehealth-, home-, and school-based services, I meet my clients where they are. Usually families come to me because they feel stuck. Their child has difficult emotions, acts out, and cannot seem to listen. Teachers and parents struggle to feel effective and worry about the child’s future. Everything feels complicated and out of control.

You always try to do the right thing, but somehow, people don't appreciate it. When you try to help, they might even blame you! You put your needs aside to take care of others, and no one is there to take care of you, but you don't say anything. Maybe you cry when no one is there. And then you put your smile back on and turn back into the person they need you to be. One day, it all gets to be too much, and you don't know what to do. So you come see me.

If your child refuses to follow directions, screams, kicks, hits, or throws things, I can help with Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). Not only have studies shown PCIT to be more effective than stimulant medication, but I can tell you how PCIT has worked wonders for my own family. Let's work together to transform your child's behaviors & bring peace and joy back to your everyday interactions with your child again. LGBQIA+ & Trans families are celebrated!

Do you have an irrational, gut feeling you can't seem to shake? Maybe something telling you that you're not good enough, unsafe, powerless...? Sometimes, difficult experiences in our past can cloud how we live in and see the present. We find ourselves overreacting to things or people, feeling anxious or worthless. Our head can tell us we are being irrational, but that doesn't change the feeling.

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.
