Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I regard the process of therapy as a dedicated collaboration between the client(s) and therapist. Both work to achieve an improvement in insight and functioning. It is a unique relationship which depends upon trust and honesty. It requires concentration and effort. Much of it is serious although there may be moments of laughter as well.

Although I am psychodynamic in my thinking, I often use cognitive and behavioral strategies to hasten change. I have been in practice for more than 20 years; patients find me creative, kind and skillful.

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.
