I provide a safe environment to help your child access their natural capacity to heal.
I use a range of modalities with children and adolescents:
• Child-centered play therapy
• Sand tray
• Somatic Experiencing®
• Expressive arts
* NeuroAffective Touch
Many of the kids I work with have trauma symptoms, loss, anxiety, attachment issues, problematic behaviors, socializing issues, being bullied, and school performance difficulties.
They may also struggle with aggression, hypervigilance, attention issues, ADD, Autism, poor impulse control, divorce in the family, and adoption.
Training & Background
I have a B.A. degree in Child Development from Cal State Northridge and an M.A. in Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy, with an emphasis on family systems, from the California Family Studies Center. I have had and continue to receive post advanced training in trauma as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and as a NeuroAffective Touch Practitioner.
The combination of play therapy and somatic table work tends to be the best combination for my child clients. It is most helpful if
i also do somatic work with one parent as part of the treatment.
For the parents of my child clients I offer support, parent coaching and education as to how to better help your child navigate what might be difficult for them. Please see Somatic Work with Children on my forms page for more information.
