Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am an artist as well as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I have worked with individuals and families in all stages of life from mothers with infants to the elderly for the past 25 years. I am currently exploring the relationship between art and healing, using the integrative approach to help individuals identify health issues, and explore the accompanying physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects through art therapy tehniques. Art therapy is emerging as a useful tool in the field of mind-body healing, because the creative arts have a remarkable healing effect on the body, mind and spirit. In a mode of appreciating rather than judging the art, expression through art materials can, with proper guidance, reveal unrealized aspects of the self. Clients, therby, gain awareness into their issues, and open up very real possibilities for healing and transformation in their lives and relationships.

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.
