    Cara Fairfax

    The day-to-day grind of caring for an infant, toddler, or young child can make you feel a little nuts. You wonder if you’re doing a good job and if it’s ever going to get easier. Sometimes you even fantasize about running away (or going to a local San Diego hotel to sleep for 24 hours). You’re over-touched, tired, and just not sure of yourself and it’s all taking a toll on you, your kids, and your relationship.

    If you’re worried about your baby or little one, I’ve got you there too. Working with babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, along with their parents, is one of my favorite things. Therapy with children under 5 years old is different than therapy with older children. Check out my page on Therapy for Children to learn more about the different types of therapy I offer depending on your child’s age and developmental needs.

    I love helping parents fall in love with and enjoy their babies and young children. I want you to wake in the morning and think to yourself “I’ve got this!”

    What You Can Expect When Working With Me

    I will help you feel better about yourself as an individual, a parent, and a spouse. Through compassionate, evidence-based, and trauma-informed therapeutic interventions, you can feel less anxious, more confident, and really enjoy your life. I am trained in several models supporting parents and children including The Incredible Years and Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). I utilize Play therapy, child brain-development theory, and am sensory informed. I also provide EMDR (EMDRia trained) with a focus on children and attachment-related trauma. Whether you are looking for individual, parent-child, family, group, or couples work, I’m here to help!
