My Approach to Helping
My practice, Palo Alto Parenting Solutions is a specialty practice focusing on therapeutic work with children and families who struggle with behavioral, social and emotional difficulties. My goal is to help the child, parent/s and family overcome difficulties affecting the quality of their lives.

I call on my training, experience and understanding to provide my clients with a safe and comfortable place to explore their world while at the same time provide insight and useful tools to help them work through issues now and in the future. Through a variety of modalities like talking, art therapy, play therapy, and sand play, I work with my clients to help them work through difficulties and develop life-long skills they will be able to utilize now and in the future.

I am experienced working with children, adolescents and their parents and collaborating with Psychiatrists, Pediatricians, Behavior Specialists and other professionals on behalf of my clients. My years working with children, and adolescents with developmental, learning and emotional differences working for the Palo Alto Unified School District, and Family and Children Services of Palo Alto, in clinic and on bay area school campuses, plus years of advocating for my own children, makes me uniquely positioned to help my clients.
