Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a couple, are you committed to being together but feeling more and more distant?

Do you find yourself getting pulled into circular arguments that seem to have a life of their own and leave you feeling sad, frustrated, lonely or anxious?

Are you feeling more life roommates yet longing for the safety, closeness, and excitement you once shared?

The distress that you’re having happen to many couples. They unintentionally get stuck in negative patterns that erode feeling secure and connected. There is a way out of this loneliness. Couples Counseling can help you get your relationship back on track. You can untangle the knots of disconnection and rekindle the warmth and laughter.

I help couples learn the necessary skills they need to bring each other a lifetime of love. Let’s talk and find out if I’m the right counselor for you.

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.
