Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Often we become accustomed to going through our lives feeling OK, but not great. We may have become accustomed to tolerating a fair amount of unhappiness on an ongoing basis. Do the things that bother us in everyday life need to bother us? Is there a perspective we’re unconsciously stuck with that makes everything harder? I’ve found that there is a fierce thread in many individuals, which operates in their lives as a masked form of self-hatred. Self-hatred, overt or covert, makes life unnecessarily difficult. It undermines the very foundation of all of our life experiences and it is always based on falsehoods. I work collaboratively with clients to bring a greater sense of ease and mastery to life. My focus includes substance abuse and addiction, domestic violence, verbally abusive relationships, women’s empowerment, depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief, EMDR, and Buddhist perspectives.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Lodi, CA 95240

If you are thinking about therapy, let me first commend you. I know it can be hard to think about sharing your problems with someone else. But something I have learned by working in this field and from my life is that problems are to be shared. We are all in this together. I try to take a balanced approach in therapy between acceptance and change.
