Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My focus is on helping people to create lasting change through the exploration and understanding of the struggles and patterns that shape their lives. We work together to integrate newfound understanding in order to increase their ability to find and create satisfaction in life and in relationship to self and others.

My style is both warm and direct. I respect the unique experience, background and needs of each client and help them to identify and realize their goals.

I work with individuals, couples and adolescents of all orientations and I have experience working with a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, body image, low self-esteem and eating disorders.

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.
