About My Clients
My passion is supporting parents! If you're exhausted from your child's tantrums and embarrassed by their meltdowns in stores, I understand because I've been there myself. If your child refuses to follow directions, screams, kicks, hits, or throws things, is hyper or inattentive, I can help with Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) - a family treatment backed by 100's of studies and 40 years of research. And I can tell you how these techniques worked wonders for my own family.
My Background and Approach
Developed through UC Davis Children's Hospital, PCIT teaches parents specialized skills that can radically transform disruptive behaviors in children ages 1-10 in as little as 14 weeks. PCIT can address behaviors arising from anxiety, ADHD, being gifted, autism, trauma, or adjustment to a new home or birth of a new sibling. PCIT can even help with children who just have strong willed personalities. 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. All family constellations welcome.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Having parented a strong willed child, I understand the frustration parents can feel when traditional parenting doesn't work. And I understand that sometimes good parents just need specialized skills to manage their child's behaviors to restore peace and joy in your home.
