Becoming a parent is a unique and transformative experience. From the moment of conception through the journey of parenting there is an array of unknown rewards, challenges and experiences. At times parents have no idea how they will feel or react to these challenges and realize that they need help and support through their own journey as parents. Research proves the way we were parented, the environment in which we developed, and the situations around us influence the way we feel and behave as parents.

It is heartbreaking to see your child struggle and not know how to help them. Most parents who call me have tried every tool they have to help their children with little or no result. you might feel alone in your experience, feel guilt and shame for not being able to help your child or even for losing your own temper if you have an intense high need child. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or feel exhausted trying to go through the daily function without meltdowns, or worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication,or defiant behavior

As a therapist who tends to soul, I believe that our sense of love and belonging (in our bodies, communities, culture, professions and families of origin) impacts us socially, cognitively, behaviorally, emotionally, somatically, spiritually, and existentially. Together we can rediscover what “home” means to you. I work with your stories, dreams, symptoms, behaviors, and mindfulness to guide you back into a full knowing of yourself, and acceptance of your path - even as you may be leaving it, physically. I specialize in the impact of personality factors and cultural knowledge on one's ability to cope with culture shock and stress.

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 Walnut Creek or for a Walnut Creek 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.
