I work with clients to create a therapeutic relationship that facilitates an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings, to experience personal growth and the freedom and joy that come with living an authentic life. I offer clients the healing experience of being truly seen, heard and accepted.

Academic counselors in 90254 help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, 90254 Therapists work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in 90254 all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good 90254 academic counselor or school counselor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
