Children with attention deficit or hyperactivity often have a hard time following rules and directions, even though they really want to be able to do the right thing. But there is hope with Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) - a family treatment backed by 100's of studies and 30 years of research. With PCIT, together we can work to transform your child's behaviors and bring peace and warmth back to your family interactions again!
Children who are adopted out of traumatic situations often have behavioral issues arising from the past trauma. PCIT was researched and developed out of UC Davis Children's Hospital with a focus on children who have trauma, foster care, and adoption histories. Hope is available. With PCIT, together we can work to transform your child's behaviors and bring peace and warmth back to your family interactions again!
My passion is supporting parents who have children ages 1-10 with disruptive behaviors that are not responding to traditional parenting. Sometimes parents just need special skills to bring peace and warmth back to their homes. I also provide Trauma-Focused CBT for children who have experienced a life stressor like a natural disaster, car accident, abuse, grief from loss of a family member, recent parent separation/divorce among other stressors. Healing is possible!
I love working with "naughty" children. Not because I enjoy seeing parents stressed out - I understand how taxing it can be to parent a strong willed child. Rather, I love working with these families because I have seen over and over again the radical shift in parents lives when they learn PCIT and how to channel their child's defiance against them into resilience and perseverance with them. "Naughtiness" is just a sign that peace and warmth can come back to the family with PCIT.
My passion is supporting parents! Having parented a strong willed child, I understand the frustration parents can feel when traditional parenting doesn't work. And understand that sometimes good parents just need specialized skills to get their children's behavior under control. With PCIT we can work together to transform your child's behaviors and bring peace and joy back to your everyday interactions with your child again
I provide Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and PC-CARE. Both are family treatment modalities for families with children ages 1-10 with disruptive behaviors that do not respond to traditional parenting. PCIT provides parents with specialized therapy skills so they can learn to manage their child's behaviors as a therapist would so they can enjoy a warm peaceful relationship with their child again.
I also provide Trauma Focused Cognitive Behaviors Therapy for children ages 2-17 who have experienced trauma as a result from natural disaster, car accidents, abuse, loss of a loved one, adjustment to parent separation/divorce or any other significant life stressor.
As an art therapist (ATR-P), I integrate art making into every therapy modality I provide because it helps people to express feelings they may not have words for and create a concrete record of the therapy process and growth that they can see at the end of treatment.
