Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, utilizing empathy, mindfulness, somatics and in the moment experience to maximize therapeutic gains. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, trauma, relationship concerns, and gender exploration, as well as in working with the following communities: same-sex (gay, bi or queer), transgender and gender non-conforming, polyamory, freak, kink, etc., although my actual practice is very diverse and I see a broad spectrum of clients. I utilize complexity theories and an integrated, relational stance to incorporate mind, body and spiritual experiences in my work, something that I believe speeds up healing more quickly than words alone.

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.
