For over 25 years I have been making old fashioned "house calls" to families in Seattle and the surrounding Eastside area. I have recently moved my practice to the beautiful Lantern District of Dana Point, CA. I specialize in helping families with children with Anxiety, special needs, adoption issues, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, peer and social issues, Depression, Attention Deficit, grief and loss, emotional regulation issues, trauma and executive functioning challenges.
My graduate studies were in Family Systems Theory from Phillips Graduate Institute, a foundation that assists me to this day in valuing the entire system around a child. Inclusive of the child's immediate family, and any other supportive or integral partners in the child's daily experience, such as their teacher and/or doctor, when requested by the parent. I also employ Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure/Relapse Prevention, and Play Therapy in my work with children.
