I have been working with children and their families for over 20 years. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in California. Before I was licensed I did lay counseling in various churches in Northern California. In my private practice I specialize in treating children and their families who have been traumatized, including families involved in National and International kidnapping cases. In addition, I work with individuals and couples to help resolved interpersonal issues such as parenting,blended families and adoptive families. I work with adults who were sexually abused as children, survivors of rape, or victims of violence. I work with all ages from 3 and up. I use various methods in treatment depending on the age and comfort level of my clients including play, art and talk therapy. I work in a collaborative, strength based approach that acknowledges the broader context of the challenges my clients may be facing.
