I am dedicated to working with my clients, and helping them identify and achieve their goals. Counseling For Women, Teens, And Children
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Cardiff, CA
Is your child having trouble with peers, feel bullied? Maybe your child feels alone, isolated from others? Is the school calling more about negative behaviors with peers and teachers? Does your child often say "everyone hates me" "I have no friends"? Do you find yourself worried and out of ideas about how to help? You're in the right place, I can help! Counseling can be extremely effective in helping children/teens learn to express themselves in healthier ways.
Do you feel shut out of your teens life? Does it seem like your teen is more defiant, overreacting when asked to do simple tasks? Are you concerned that your teen is not understanding the consequences of making poor choices? Are you concerned that your teen may have poor self image, poor body image, or an eating disorder? Wouldn't you rather have your teen work out what's happening now then when they are 24?
The fact you are looking for a therapist shows you have begun a worthwhile journey and asking for help is OK! You deserve a place to be you without fear of judgement. Life is hard, stressful and full of obstacles! Often times we can feel stuck when different stages occur in our lives and need an outside view! If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you.
This is goal-oriented therapy. We will focus on your present and future goals for improving your life.
Use of mindfulness strategies can help you better understand and manage your thoughts/emotions, be present and responsive to how you are handling your daily life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is helpful with identifying dysfunctional thoughts/behaviors and learning healthier patterns of thinking. You will start to feel better over time from being thoroughly understood, learning that your situation is not hopeless, and learning how to use your strengths.
Do You Feel Like You’ve Lost Your Teenager? Do you feel shut out of your teens life? Are you concerned that your teen is not understanding the consequences of making poor choices? Are you concerned that your teen may have poor self image, poor body image, or an eating disorder? Being a parent is hard regardless of your unique situation, and there is nothing wrong with seeking help. Wouldn't it be better to help your teen figure out now what's happening then when they are 24?
