Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Even years after enduring a traumatic loss, whether from ongoing infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth or the death of a baby, it is normal for you to struggle with ongoing concerns which result from your loss. Doubts may linger and can influence how you parent your other children. It is my goal to help you have a fulfilling family experience, despite the tragedy you’ve endured. I assist parents in developing new ways to soothe inner worries and fears that make it difficult to be a respectful and responsive parent, especially as the other children in the family work toward their own, growing independence. Parents learn how to balance protectiveness while nurturing healthy self-reliance within their family. They find the way to share their family's story with their children. Our work together provides new opportunities for growth and closeness within the family.

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.
