Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my Lafayette office, I specialize in working with children and families. This includes young children from age 5 and up, teenagers, and couples. Family therapy approaches can vary based on the presenting issues. When working with a child, the parents and other primary caregivers are always included in the process. Teenagers sometimes need a private space all their own; at other times, adolescent therapy can include regular family sessions where I assist teens and their parents in discussing or mediating various topics. Couples work focuses on improved communication, as well as assisting couples in understanding their unique dynamics as a couple and their own willingness for individual change (as opposed to changing a partner). In addition to providing the above services, I am also employed by the California Superior Court of Contra Costa County as a child custody mediator and evaluator, and I am considered a court expert with regards to appropriate parenting plans for children whose parents do not reside together. In my private therapy office, I offer co-parenting counseling for divorced families and child custody evaluations for families that have a court case in a county order than Contra Costa County.
