Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My clinical work focuses on how relationships shape individual behavior and functioning in one's family, work system and other social systems. I support clients to develop more effective options for decreasing chronic anxiety/depression, increasing more effective self-management skills in relationship to important others, and increasing flexibility and resiliency to meet all of life's challenges. Therapy is a process of increasing one's ability to balance automatic reactivity and feelings with a factual view of oneself and others. My work with individuals, couples and families is guided by Bowen Family Systems Theory (www.socalbowentheory.com). Bowen theory places the individual's functioning in the broader context of their important relationships. In addition to private practice, I am the Director of Southern CA Education and Training in Bowen Theory. This program provides education and training to individuals interested in Bowen theory principles and concepts. The focus is on developing a way of thinking that can lead to more effective options for managing life's challenges in the family and the workplace. Participants in the program come from a variety of professional backgrounds including mental health, business, clergy, law, medicine, and education. I am a AAMFT and CAMFT approved supervisor. I also offer individual and group supervision/consultation to licensed and non-licensed therapists in training.

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.
