My passion is supporting parents! We can work together to transform your child's behaviors & bring peace and joy back to your home.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Bernardino, CA
My passion is supporting parents who have children ages 1-10 with disruptive behaviors that are not responding to traditional parenting. I also provide Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for children who have experienced a life stressor that is causing significant stress and symptoms - stressors like natural disaster, car accidents, abuse, or loss of family member 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 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 or any other life stressor that has resulted in trauma symptoms.
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.
