Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice located in Los Gatos and Los Altos, California, I assist individuals, adolescents, couples and families in coping more effectively with the stresses of life.

I am here to explore with you in a supportive and nonjudgmental safe space. I offer a variety of techniques to provide a personalized approach tailored to your concerns. It's important to me that you feel understood and supported. My space is a place of encouragement and growth. Whatever your issues are, we can work on them in a place of respect and warmth. It's important to me that my clients improve, whether it's increased coping skills or getting to the ah-hah! moments. Empathy is always present.

People consult me with a variety of concerns: for example, to feel better about themselves; to maintain more satisfying relationships; to decrease their anxiety; to feel happier in their lives; to manage their emotions; to deal with personal or family crisis; to work on spiritual issues; to work through trauma, pain, or loss.

I have over 7 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, and adolescents in a clinical setting and in a school setting plus 15 years experience working in or with corporate human resource departments.

Please call. I can help.
