I help young adults who are struggling with feelings of low self-worth gain confidence and feel comfortable in their own skin.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA
I became a certified trainer in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) through UC Davis in 2016. PCIT is a combination of attachment and behavior therapy and is an evidenced based practice that improves the attachment between child and parent. Helping the child feel safe and secure in their relationship with their parent will help shape that child's future. I have helped numerous families graduate from PCIT and they report astounding positive changes to their relationship.
You thought this time period would be like everyones posts on instagram, happy and perfect. Yet you feel the opposite of those posts. You feel alone and overwhelmed with this new life you are now responsible for. Society now treats you differently, the expectations, the advice, the constant judgement is too much. It is okay to feel all of your feelings. I understand your experience and through our work together you will have a space to grow and be the best parent you are meant to be.
Your child's behaviors are difficult to manage and the relationship has become a daily struggle. You worry that you aren't doing everything you can to ensure a positive future. I bring a decade's worth of experience in helping to reduce parental stress and improve your child's behaviors. I utilize a unique combination of play therapy alongside parental skill building. This reduces challenging behaviors and allows you to rediscover the ease and joy in your relationship with your child.
Lost your sense of self. Still catch yourself wondering if you made the right decision in ending that relationship, your family and people around you told you to keep trying to make it work. When it was good, it was so good, it made it worth the bad. You thought that it wasn't as bad as other relationships you've seen. I understand the complexity of intimate partner violence, and have helped individuals learn that a healthy relationship is possible and most importantly that you deserve it.
Constant toxicity in your family unit has become the norm. You thought that your family is where you would feel safe, go for comfort, but instead your left with wanting to get away from them the second you are together. I bring you a decades worth of experience in helping families rediscover one another and learn to lean into each other. Life is hard enough, having a family that helps you through it makes it all more manageable.
