My Approach to Helping

*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS VIRTUALLY IN THE STATES OF TEXAS and CALIFORNIA*

Life is full of change and transition. It can be very challenging to keep in mind the mental health of children and adolescents, when parents are trying to manage their own mental health. Children's behaviors are often the voice of what is often unseen and unheard. They develop their own way of coping which can be maladaptive.

With over 14 years of experience working with children and adolescents, my therapeutic practice focuses on building therapeutic rapport, while experiencing fun and laughter, to validate and begin the process of expressing thoughts and feelings. Through compassion, I am able to facilitate a process of evaluating options to address areas of stress, anxiety and other major concerns. While you may have already tried to reach out to those whom you usually reach out to for support with your child, you may have arrived at the realization that you need a different type of support. Support that is provided by someone who is objective, non-judgmental, and trained in understanding brain and behavior from a culturally grounded perspective. I will be an extension of the village it takes to raise a child.

In my practice, your child will be seen and heard.

Groups I Work With

    It can be challenging for children and adolescents to process what’s going on in their head and all the physical sensations in their body. Children have a hard time expressing and understanding what they are feeling; like why their stomach hurts, why they have trouble sleeping, and why going to school might feel scary.

    I am incredibly passionate about pediatric mental health. I aim to give children the tools they need to share what they are feeling. I achieve this through unconditional positive regard and the technique of therapeutic play. Most importantly, I will let the child know that what they are feeling is okay. I keep parents involved with children 12 and under for a few minutes each session to go over coping strategies, behaviors, and to address and concerns.
