Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
While completing her pre-medicine requirements as an undergraduate at UCLA, Athena realized that there was a distinction between treating and healing. Her interest in healing led her to begin studying holistic medicine in 1995. Athena is trained in massage therapy, has a Master’s Degree in Somatic (Body-Oriented) Psychology and specializes in working with trauma. Her work has been focused in healing trauma, as well as supporting growth and development throughout life. She is a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the Director of Wellness Works Holistic Health Center. She practices traditional psychotherapy and body-oriented psychotherapy utilizing her intuitive gifts and offering tools for empowerment, while addressing we are mind-body-spirit. With great compassion and respect, Athena brings awareness to that which is present in growth, transformation and healing.

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.
