Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you feeling stuck, trapped, and anxious? Perhaps you feel you don't measure up to what you believe others expect of you, or to what you expect of yourself? These feelings and others may indicate an underlying misalignment in your life. It may be time to discover what is underneath your feelings, aching to come out of hiding. Growing the ability to reconnect with your life, and with others who are important to you, may be key. If you are feeling anxious, it may be that something in you is trying to get your attention. Although anxiety and panic attacks can be scary, learning to relate to anxious feelings in a new way can be an invitation for new understanding, meaning, and creativity. Through being interested and curious, while maintaining awareness and presence in the body, we can, together, unearth what needs tending and care. I cultivate with clients a compassionate, caring environment by listening deeply, maintaining non-judgment, and observing what you are interested in and passionate about. I help you discover the obstacles that seem to block your ability to take action, and invite your process to unfold at whatever pace is necessary.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
