*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA*
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.
