My Approach to Helping
Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile! I am happy to share my qualifications, experience, and my therapeutic style with you.
I ensure the people in my care receive attentive, compassionate and comprehensive treatment that is grounded in evidence-based, modern approaches. The fact that I am one of only two mental health professionals in San Diego with board certification in clinical child and adolescent psychology, means my treatment techniques are highly specialized. This advanced training contributes to a thorough comprehension of your child's specific make up and family condition. Rest assured that you will be actively involved in the therapeutic process, as you are the most important resource in my work with your child.
I am fully aware that it is not always easy to seek professional help, particularly when you observe that your child has behavioral challenges, is not meeting expected developmental milestones, or is experiencing distress. You may even feel overwhelmed with feelings of helplessness, anger, discouragement, or shame. My gentle, empathic approach guarantees great care will be taken when we address any issues that are particularly sensitive.
