I am Esperanza Applestein, LMFT, and am committed to providing the patience, advice, and help your child may need. I utilize evidence-based practices including cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy and mindfulness. When beneficial, I also include family therapy so that the family unit can heal together. By speaking with them, I can help them figure out the basis of their issues and provide coping skills to help them manage triggering situations and feelings.
If your child has been struggling emotionally, acting out violently, or is prone to locking themselves in their room for hours on end, then they may be struggling with deeper issues and benefit from child psychotherapy. Depression and anxiety don’t go away on their own, and must be taken seriously if your child is to live their fullest life. I have been in practice for over 20 years, and serve the San Diego, CA area proudly. Let us get to the bottom of your child’s issues, so that your family can live healthier, happier lives.
