Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Children and teens have an incredible amount of potential. At the same time they are faced with a good amount of "turbulence" and hardship as they experience growing up for the first time. This experience can be further complicated by unexpected losses, changes in family structure, or any number of other life lessons confronting young people throughout childhood. Understanding and respecting both the basic developmental needs and the unique individual experiences of each child is at the center of my practice. With professional experiences in school, community, and private practice settings, I find that children have an endless ability to heal and grow through a safe and supportive relationship. I employ basic conversation, creative activities, and relationship-building to help young people. Gameplay, skill-building, and role-playing are all typical approaches when helping children communicate better with themselves and others.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
