Counseling & Therapy for Children, Adults, and Families
in the East Bay, Lafayette, CA.
Welcome! I'd like to take this opportunity to share a little about the psychotherapy service I provide in Lafayette, CA in the East Bay. I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist here in Lafayette for over five years.
Although I work with all kinds of clients, my primary specialty is with children who struggle with behavioral and/or emotional problems, using playful and positive means to help them with anger management, social skills, expression of feelings, and relationships with friends and family.
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 in helping them with children that have difficult behavioral problems. I have taught parenting classes and classes related to divorce and communication as well. My office has a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere; 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."
If you are not familiar with my therapy office and your first contact with me is online, 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 offered on weekday evenings and weekend mornings in my Lafayette, California office.
