Why Seek Therapy?

Adolescents struggle with complex issues such as depression, anxiety, social pressures, academic stress, community violence, juvenile justice and low self-esteem.  Therapy addresses personal and social issues to reduce anxiety and distractions that get in the way of learning.  

Our ultimate goals are to support your child’s academic success and personal growth.


Mental Health Services Offered

~Individual or Group Therapy

One-to-one or group therapy sessions, typically once a week. These services are Confidential.

~Family Therapy

It may be recommended that one or more family members are included in sessions with the student, typically on a regular basis.

~Case Management

I may provide students and families with one-to-one meetings, outside referrals, goal-setting and coordinating services.

~Crisis Intervention

Immediate individual support for unexpected situations interfering with personal, social, or academic functioning. Available to all Hayward High students, regardless of eligibility.
