Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Licensed MFT, working with adults, couples, teens/kids. I create a safe, caring, supportive environment where clients can explore emotional needs and overcome barriers that limit their own potential and their relationships. My goal is to help you meet your goals. Change is scary for most people, so I commend you for stepping out of your comfort zone. Many wonderful people suffer with painful emotions or low self-esteem. Therapy can help you learn tools and gain insight on how to change what isn’t working for you. In finding the right therapist it is important to feel safe and connected. My approach is empathic, thoughtful, interactive, and essentially dedicated to the support of your well-being. Developing self-awareness and focusing on improving self-esteem and relationships is a large component of my focus in therapy. It is my goal to help you develop strategies and skills that relate to your goals. Whether you want to improve communication and trust in regards to relationships, or self-esteem, or work to lessen depression or anxiety, I am here to help you. I have extensive experience helping people with a variety of life challenges. I work with couples, individuals, adolescents and children. I am also available for Christian and pre-marital counseling.

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.
