Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Life often presents a myriad of difficulties that can be stressful and even overwhelming. No matter whether your difficulty is new or long-standing, therapy can assist you to discover new ways to cope with life’s challenges. Since each person is unique, I build my approach to fit each person’s individual needs. In a safe, supportive environment, you can gain insight, improve communication, and uncover beliefs that no longer serve you in order to realize your potential and to experience the fullness of life.

My approach is eclectic. Modalities include art therapy, DBT, Jungian-based sandtray, family systems, EMDR for trauma, theraplay activities, and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. Even though I do not accept insurance, I will provide you with a statement to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

“The turning point in the process of growing is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives the hurt.” –Max Lerner

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
