Articles
Work load, sharing custody, co-parenting, anxiety, depression, loss, sickness and children acting out, are all difficult situations to deal with. While you struggle with these issues you are suffering and your family is suffering, Let me help you strengthen your family unit and increase your ability to deal with life's stresses.

My approach to counseling is integrative and personal. During the assessment process I seek to utilize the "best fit" of techniques, tools and theory for each client. My theories of choice are developmental, cognitive behavioral, expressive art, play therapy, and solution focused therapy. I incorporate Applied Behavior Analysis principles throughout my work with families. I believe that it is important for families and children to be given the tools that they need to grow. This is best accomplished through an eclectic, personalized approach to therapy. Each person is unique and special, just as every family is. I seek to bring out and strengthen those unique qualities in families and children by utilizing strength based therapy.
Bio
I am a Santa Cruz native, born and raised. I love the diversity of the area and the colorful people that live in the area. I love working with families and children and have done so for over twenty years in various capacities.

I have a strong desire to bring growth, support and change to the families and children that I provide therapy to. I believe that it is important for families to have access to community resources and support to strengthen the family's support base. Just as each person is a unique individual, so is each child and every family. There is no such thing as "cookie cutter therapy." When working with a family I utilize a variety of techniques and theories to create a unique, personal, productive therapy relationship.

I am a strong advocate for early intervention and have seen huge growth for children that are fortunate enough to receive it. I love working with children under five and am amazed at child development and early intervention. I like to look at how a child is being affected developmentally by family challenges, such as divorce and co-parenting.

I provide parental counseling, sibling counseling, family unit counseling, individual counseling, marriage counseling and counseling in regard to early intervention in Scotts Valley where I am in private practice.
