IT IS COMMON FOR PARENTS TO FEEL LOST WHEN FINDING THE RIGHT THERAPIST ESPECIALLY IN SAN DIEGO WERE THE CHOICES ARE OVERWHELMING.
You are wanting to make sure you find someone both you and your child can trust, but not sure where to start.
While finding a therapist with the right education and experience is important, it is also important to find someone that your Child/Teen and you feel comfortable talking to.
I offer a free phone consultation to make sure you have the opportunity to find out if we are a good client-therapist match.
Counseling can be extremely effective in helping children/teens learn to express themselves in healthier ways.
It also can build on what you, as a parent, are already doing, as well as offer support, education and new concepts to try at home.
Being a parent is hard regardless of your unique situation, and there is nothing wrong with seeking help.
I can help your child find balance and a sense of calm when facing challenging emotions. We will work together to help your family heal and thrive.
NEXT STEPS...Sometimes the most difficult step is making the initial call for support. I invite you to call for a free telephone consultation. If you decide to proceed further, we will schedule an appointment.

Whatever obstacles and struggles someone may be going through in life, I consider it a privilege to help them deal with. I understand that the clients I see are entrusting me to give them the right resources to guide them down a new path, with a new perspective, so they can achieve their own goals. With a healthy balance of listening, guiding, and even learning, I use my own experience and resources to help people really start off on the right foot on that path. Whether you, or someone you know struggles with something like depression, or simply wants a different outlook on their life, it’s something to work through together, and by setting up a consultation, we can get started.
Areas of Specialty:
Poor Self Image
Changes in Family Dynamics
As a therapist, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. Together we’ll work to uncover and better understand life’s challenges and day-to-day stressors that detract from your life and focus, and begin identifying and practicing things that will make you stronger.
Therapy is meant to be a completely individual experience, and I treat it as such, with deep compassion and absolutely no judgment. Not only do I want to provide support and encouragement for each of my clients, but it’s my goal to offer them practical resources that they can put into practice immediately in their lives. I used both modern approaches and tried and true methods to fit each client’s individual needs with understanding, no matter who they are, or their particular walk of life. Everyone can achieve more personal growth and strength, and it’s an honor to work on that together.
