Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I desire to create a supportive and nurturing relationship that assists us in targeting your various concerns. My personal strengths are a lifetime of experience, a good sense of humor, an excellent education and a family systems perspective that aids us in your psychological healing. We work together to create a treatment plan that is developed for you specifically. As my clients can attest to, we will have a compassionate and honest therapeutic relationship and a reassuring and supportive environment while working towards creating a better life for you. I specialize in anxiety, depression, marital therapy, adjustment problems, anger management, substance issues and trauma. I am EMDR Trained, and also in various other treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a number of evidence based practices and TF-CBT, another treatment for trauma. I serve individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents. I utilize "discernment theory" as a means to perceive which treatment is most helpful for the individual clients needs. I am also an EMDR Trained intern, a unique and efficient therapy treatment. This technique can assist client's in a quicker healing that is quite unexpected.

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.
