Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
A licensed psychotherapist for 29 years, I specialize in treating individuals suffering from anxiety and depression. I also work with couples to improve communication and end destructive conflict. I am certified in EMDR to treat the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Coming from a foundation of Mindfulness, the practice of paying attention to the present moment, this very moment which contains our experience of pain as well as our potential for healing, I weave together many different strands of psychological wisdom in my work with clients, including Attachment Theory, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral approaches to therapy, and Buddhist Psychology.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
