Online Counseling & Therapy for Children, Adults, and Families
Based in the East Bay, Lafayette, CA.

Julie 2022

Welcome! I'd like to take this opportunity to share a little about the psychotherapy service I provide. I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Contra Costa County for 25 years. Throughout that time, I have been providing individual, couples, and family therapy to a diverse clientele with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. I provide a comfortable and supportive atmosphere and genuinely care about all of my clients. Using my training in the latest methodologies, I help you know and accept yourself better and improve your relationships through the development of assertive communication and attuned listening skills. I place an emphasis on your strengths and tailor my approach to your unique needs, in order to be most effective in helping you attain the personal growth you're striving for.

Although I work with individuals, couples, and families, the bulk of my career has been aimed at helping children who struggle with behavioral and/or emotional problems, in conjunction with parenting support, education, and coaching.  I use (and teach) playful and positive means to help children develop the capacity for regulation, anger management skills, social skills, motivation, and expression of feelings. Since parents have such an impact, I often suggest we work together first on attuned listening skills and strategic parenting methods that improve parental effectiveness, through building on the child's innate desire to feel successful and please parents. 

Play therapy is the treatment of choice for young children and is something at which I am particularly skilled. Children tend to feel immediately comfortable with my natural, playful style. The parents I work with particularly value my direct, but caring, approach while providing guidance for parenting children that have difficult behavioral problems. I have taught parenting classes in several settings, including the specialized area of co-parenting around divorce.  Interactions with me are relaxed and comfortable; no heavy analysis setting here.

I always welcome the opportunity to work with parents, families, and children under stress. Let's face it: aren't we all?  No situation is beyond hope; my clients leave our sessions with real insight and tools with which to move beyond their troubling issues.

My clients come from diverse backgrounds. I am especially interested in the unique challenges so often found in intercultural relationships, blended families, and families with special needs children. I believe in building on your strengths and "keeping it positive."

Of course, you are looking for a therapist who is the right match for you. Therefore, I offer a free phone consultation and understand that you may be trying out a few therapists.  I would be pleased to hear from you! Let me know your needs and concerns; I will be more than happy to help.

Sessions are available in the evenings (including weekends) online only.
