My passion is supporting parents! I am currently providing in-home, online, and office based Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for parents of children ages 1-10 with behavioral challenges that do not respond to traditional parenting. Through PCIT parents learn specialized skills to manage tantrums, screaming, hitting, biting, cursing, throwing objects, lying, stealing, homework problems, and bed times problems so that parents can regain a sense of calm and joy in their everyday interactions with their children. After 15 years of working with children with behavioral challenges, I have chosen to provide PCIT exclusively in my practice with families because it gives direct support to parents, can have a lifelong impact on a child’s happiness and success, and because it works.
PCIT which was developed through UC Davis Children’s Hospital has been shown to be effective by 100’s of studies over 30 years. PCIT can radically transform disruptive behaviors in children in as little as 14 sessions. See the link below for one of the many research articles on the efficacy of PCIT.
I am now providing PCIT in the entire state of California via telehealth, office based PCIT in San Bernardino, and in-home treatment in the the areas of Redlands, Rancho Cucamonga, and Pasadena.
Adoptive and foster families can especially benefit! All family constellations are supported.
Call today to discuss if PCIT is right for your family.
