We are living in a time of constant stress, pressure, and increased disconnection. As a young adult, you may find yourself often stressed, difficulty concentrating, struggling to adjust to life roles and transitions, or experiencing a sense of just going thru the motions.
You may be experiencing symptoms of tightness in your chest, shallow breathing, body tension leading up to worrisome thoughts and insecurities about yourself. All this anxiety is constantly taking you away from being the whole person you have been striving to become.
You don't need to be in constant fear, or struggling alone anymore. I'm here to help and accompany you into your journey.
Connecting thru the safety of the therapeutic relationship, we'll make sense and explore what is happening in your brain and body when you feel emotionally dysregulated, anxious, and depressed. Together, we'll listen mindfully and deeply to your body's inherent wisdom to reconnect with yourself, restore your power, to find relief, and to feel whole again.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the most important avenue for change and my goal is for clients to feel safe so they can explore what's most challenging for them and heal within the safety of the therapeutic relationship.
I offer services in Portuguese as well. Connect with me to see if we can work together.
*COVID-19 update: At this time I am taking child clients on a case-by-case basis only. Please contact me to see if I can be of help to you and your child.*
Children are not developmentally able to fully put into words what is troubling them. Instead, their struggle often presents as tantrums, acting out,crying, whining, sleep issues, somatic complaints, clingy behavior, anger outbursts just to name a few.
Childhood is not supposed to be this constant struggle!
In my work, I use developmentally, and evidence-based, approaches to help children to co-regulate and parent and child feel connected again and decrease challenging behaviors in the LONG-TERM.
Let's face it, being parent is one of the most difficult jobs there is in the world. Especially now, during times of social distancing and as our lives have been turned upside down.
You may be feeling drained from having to constantly manage your child's emotions and behaviors at home, which may be leading to feeling disconnected from your child. I can help you strengthen your parent-child relationship.
I am trained in Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT), a form of Filial Therapy, to assist parents in experiencing a more positive and stronger relationship with their child, which decreases unwanted problematic behaviors, while utilizing the healing powers of play.
