As a counselor specializing in supporting children, young adults, and women, being present with my clients is more important than using a specific technique. I blend a supportive client-centered approach with creativity and compassion, providing a warm, nurturing therapeutic environment. I will listen closely to understand your life and your world, drawing from many styles, including solution-focused, narrative, and cognitive therapy. I am an empathetic listener and insightful guide, asking questions to help identify goals and clear away confusion and past or current pain that may be blocking the release of self-defeating patterns.

I provide a safe haven to explore your innermost feelings, thoughts, experiences, desires; I want to hear your story.

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.

Sandplay Therapists
Sandplay therapy in Sonoma establishes a safe and protected space, where the complexities of the client's inner world can be explored. Often young children, clients place miniature figurines in a small sandbox to express confusing feelings and inner experiences. This creates a visual representation of the client's thoughts and feelings and can reveal unconscious concerns that are inaccessible. The therapist does not interpret, interfere with, or direct the client's sand play but maintains an attitude of receptivity and acceptance, so the client can bring unconscious material into consciousness without censure. If you're looking for a Sonoma sandplay Therapist, or sand play Therapists for sand therapy.
