Welcome to my website. I provide counseling and therapy techniques to address psychological and emotional issues to children, teens and adults In a relaxed, creek side setting. My clients come from Walnut Creek as well as other areas of Contra Costa and Alameda Counties. I am an active member of both the Contra Costa Psychological Association and the California Psychological Association.
My goal is to help individuals feel safe, understood and successful in the process of therapy.
I find that even a brief intervention can often be helpful in assisting people during a difficult situation, when a combination of support, active listening and discussing possible strategies or changes as needed can provide many people with new tools or ideas to deal with their individual situation.
My psychotherapy services are individually tailored for each client.For younger children, I generally use various play therapy techniques, such as sand tray therapy and art therapy, designed to make the therapy both effective and fun for the child. I also teach children age appropriate techniques to help with anxiety, stress or mood changes.Older children and teens tend to benefit from art, learning coping skills and/or talk therapy, while adults often prefer psychotherapy techniques that utilize problem solving skills, cognitive behavioral strategies and/or psychodynamic principles.
I have over 14 years of clinical experience working with people of all ages both in my office and in a variety of other settings, including community mental health centers, schools, medical settings and acute psychiatric care facilities. I have provided psychological and neuropsychological testing for children, teens and adults, and group therapy in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
Providing psychotherapy and counseling services in Walnut Creek allows me to work with clients from a broad area, including both Contra Costa County and Alameda County. I enjoy my work tremendously, and feel very comfortable working with a wide range of issues, including childhood and adolescent/teen problems as well as those affecting adults. Some of the issues I work with include-
- Bipolar Disorder
