Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a couples specialist, I believe two strong “I’s” make the strongest “we”. I also believe that therapy can help you to thrive, not just survive! As problems mount in your couplehood, it can become disillusioning, frightening, confusing, and even overwhelming. Yet it IS possible to make this adversity a stepping stone toward greater intimacy. Adversity offers the opportunity to become stronger, not in SPITE of the challenge, but BECAUSE of it. Actually, resilience in the face of hard times means developing the ability to bounce FORWARD. And the good news is that it CAN be taught!

I consider it an honor to walk a healing path with troubled couples. Whether you just found out about an affair, your partner abuses drugs or you need the arguments to end, I have insight and tools to help you obtain long-lasting change. Whatever the challenge, we will use this adversity as a real opportunity.

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.
