My Approach to Helping

Are you a good parent but you're worried about your child? Are the strategies you've tried just not working? It doesn't have to be this way.

I've worked with many children who are anxious, depressed, have low self esteem or have difficulty adjusting to change or transitions. Through a calm, non judgmental approach, I help children learn effective ways to seek attention and how to communicate their needs and thoughts in words. I've helped many parents increase their confidence and energy and improve their relationships with their child.

There is hope. Help your child feel better now and develop long lasting skills. Call me today at 415-354-4241.
