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 twenty years.
Although I work with all kinds of clients, my primary specialty is with parenting and children who struggle with behavioral and/or emotional problems. I use playful and positive means to help 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 looking for a therapist who is the right match for you, I offer a free phone consultation and 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 weekends by telehealth video.
