PCIT Experts is a specialty clinic committed to providing Gold-Standard Parent- Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) to families across the United States.
Being a parent is hard. We want our children to succeed in all areas of their lives, but sometimes we find ourselves dealing with difficult behaviors, such as defiance, tantrums, and meltdowns. We watch them struggle at home, at school, and with other kids. We talk to our friends, try a range of strategies, and still feel lost when all the traditional approaches don't help. That's why our experienced therapists are so glad that we can offer Parent- Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), an extremely effective evidence-based treatment designed to help you connect with your child and reduce behavior problems and distress in 3-4 months.

I offer a safe, therapeutic space for children , adolescents, and young adults to get in touch with their inner self and develop tools to help them through life’s challenges.
Life presents many circumstances that can be difficult for any person to navigate on their own. We aren’t born with the emotional regulation skills or coping skills needed to deal with the complexities of this fast-paced, high-pressure society. Some days we may be consumed with negative thoughts that hinder us from being who we want to be. Some days we are flooded with big emotions that are hard to control and seem to overpower us. Some days we experience worries that seem so big that it's hard for us to function.

Do you feel an increase in depression or anxiety? Are you concerned about your job?

As a bilingual therapist (Spanish/English), I offer a global perspective with personal & professional experience in the areas of adoption, children , families, substance abuse, trauma, grief/loss, terminal illness/cancer, and aging.
Life's journey presents challenges for us all in unique ways. When the challenges become unbearable and affect our ability to function and connect to family and the world as we desire, we may need a safe place to voice these concerns and time to work through them. In the therapeutic process, my goal is to allow clients to feel safe, heard and able to re-connect to themselves in open in honest ways, so the personal work of therapy can begin.

I genuinely enjoy assisting my clients, and I especially love working with kids.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
