More Resources


I know that the majority of life extends beyond the therapy office, so I want to share the best tools around in order to better support you and yours, as you rebuild home.

Books + Articles

These are some of the best resources I've found about relationships, parenting, personal growth and the healing process

 

Workshops + Retreats

At times, we need to take a more focused, intensive approach to a certain issue, oftentimes alongside others who are in a similar place

 

Assessments

Interested in learning more about yourself?  You might find one of these assessments helpful. 

 

Community Organizations

I've come to know several local organizations that offer tremendous services for individuals, couples and families who are in the process of rebuilding "home"

 

Service

Our own stories and struggles can be an inspiration to others, and I've had the privilege of getting to know some remarkable service organizations in San Diego

"Screen-based media associated with structural differences in brains of young children"

Science Daily 

 

"A new study documents structural differences in the brains of preschool-age children related to screen-based media use. The study, published in JAMA Pediatrics, shows that children who have more screen time have lower structural integrity of white matter tracts in parts of the brain that support language and other emergent literacy skills. These skills include imagery and executive function — the process involving mental control and self-regulation. These children also have lower scores on language and literacy measures."
