Taking the step to ask for help for you or your child is a courageous one. Whether you are coming to talk about your own life or to learn how to best care for your child’s needs, I will work to make sure you feel supported, heard, and understood. I provide a safe place for you to process and talk about things that happen in your life, memories from the past, or thoughts and emotions that may feel overwhelming. For parents, I help you understand why your child is acting anxious, defiant, or sad, and give you tools to support them. More than anything, I seek to be an empathetic partner to walk alongside you or your family in your journey toward healing.
I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and families who have experienced difficult circumstances or who have emotional and behavioral difficulties. I work with all ages of children, adolescents, and adults, and have additional training in working with children ages 0-5.
I use a variety of modalities including child-centered play therapy, child-parent psychotherapy, psychodynamic, attachment, and cognitive-behavioral therapies. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a type of therapy that helps resolve difficult or traumatic memories and a variety of other problems.
I speak Spanish and enjoy providing services for families wanting therapy for their child in English, plus parenting support in Spanish. I have experience working with a variety of other symptoms and situations including: trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression, autism, grief and loss, anger, adoption, parenting work, immigration and acculturation, and behavioral difficulties.
