Sometimes children and parents need help on how to be the best kid or parent they could be!

Are you tired of fighting with your kid all of the time?
Is your child or teen struggling at home, school, or in their everyday life?
Does your child have trouble making or keeping friends?
Did your family go through a recent big change?
Does your child just need someone to talk to that is not a parent?
Do you wonder why your tween or teen does "that"?
Are you trying to figure out how to be the best parent for them? 

As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Registered Play Therapist I can help your child work through their struggles and help you, as their parent, help them too.

I help children process life changes, big emotions, and sometimes what happens in the world. I do this through play therapy because children often do not have the words to express what is going on with them inside.

I specialize in working with children ages 10 and under, adolescents 11 and up, and their parents - using play therapy.  

I am Krystle Briese

My name is Krystle Briese and I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT92544) and a Registered Play Therapist (T3427). I provide child therapy and play therapy services in the San Diego area, located in El Cajon.

I work with children, teens, and their parents to help them with some of life's more difficult times. These include empowering parents to be the kind of parents they hope to be and helping kids become assertive, empathetic, and independent humans.

I expect to parents to be a big part of treatment, to work as a team to help their child.
