Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Michele Spitulnik, licensed marriage and family therapist practicing in Lafayette, CA.

Children and Adolescents

  • Is your child or teen having trouble in school?
  • Is there tension at home within the family? 
  • Is there a lot of drama in friendships? 
  • Does your child or teen know what interests them  and how to spend free time? 
  • Has your child or teen had a loss of someone important?

With children I use a variety of play therapy techniques including art, puppets, dolls, and games, to build trust and comfort. With adolescents I use art, collage, music, or talk therapy to access the critical issues.  In each case I schedule regular meetings with parents or the family to ensure good communication and extension of our work to the home environment.
