I specialize in therapy for parents and young children, specifically infants, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners.
Associate Clinical Social Worker in , CA
Supervised by Macy Grim
I do Parent Child Interaction Therapy and Child Parent Psychotherapy, two therapies that use play to help parents and children overcome difficulties and process difficult feelings. In Parent Child Interaction Therapy, I will help you follow along with your child's play, while also setting limits. In Child Parent Psychotherapy, I will also help you follow along with you child's play, and help your child use play to process difficult experiences.
I am trained in CBT through the Academy of CBT. This therapy will help you identify your thoughts and help you modify your thoughts to change your feelings and feel better. Since my speciality is parents and young children (0-5), I will help you use cognitive behavioral therapy to first identify your thoughts around parenting and your child and then we'll work together to transform them, helping you feel better.
Both parent child interaction therapy and child parent psychotherapy are rooted in attachment theory. These therapies help strengthen attachment between a parent and a child so the child feels more secure and acts out less. I am certified in Parent Child Interaction Therapy through Children's Institute Inc. and roster eligible (equivalent of certification) in Child Parent Psychotherapy. I have used both modalities successfully with clients over the past 2-3 years.
I specialize in parenting and parent child relationships. My goal is to help you, as a parent, deeply connect and attune to your child so your child feels more secure and act out less. I can teach you techniques for managing your child's behavior, and also do deeper work with you to understand what drives your child's behavior.
I work with young kids (infants, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarterners) with behavioral and emotional difficulties.
I help parents strengthen attachment with their child through play, helping the child feel seen and heard.
