My therapeutic process begins by identifying a person’s struggles, thoughts and behavior patterns while taking into account their family upbringing, culture and values. By identifying how these aspects affect the way one reacts and makes decisions it clarifies why one feels stuck or confused. These conflicts might present as anxiety, depression, addictions or compulsions, etc. The transformative process in therapy occurs through practicing new ways of thinking and responding and asserting oneself. I look forward to helping you get "unstuck" and achieve a more gratifying and productive life.

The most important thing in working together is building the foundation of a trusting relationship, where you can feel safe to talk openly. You know your life better than anyone else does. Therefore, we will hold great respect for your self-wisdom. Together with my professional knowledge and experience, we can work to help you discover how to live life in a way that is most fitting for you. NOTE: a professional relationship will not be formed until we both agree to do so, and only during/after an initial meeting. Any prior contact is for informational purposes only.

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 West Torrance, Torrance or for a West Torrance, Torrance 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.
