"I am the owner of Santa Cruz Child Therapy, a practice specializing in helping children, adolescents and parents overcome traumatic stress, relational issues, attachment trauma, and behavioral concerns. When your child is behaving in a way that is unusual or concerning, it can feel extremely distressing as a parent. Young people often display behavioral concerns that do not necessarily match the underlying feeling or root cause, making things feel even more confusing. It is my goal to work collaboratively with you to understand your child fully and utilize inherent strengths within your relationship to attend to both of your needs."

"Why go to therapy or pursue inner work? It's a great question because the seemingly simple act of creating a weekly ritual to reflect on oneself is actually a subversive thing to do. Something you discover may reorient your life. Maybe what you originally thought was a problem is more precisely a sign relaying information that could help you love more deeply, live more freely, and be less like everyone else. "
