Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am enthusiastic and passionate about counseling and about walking with you through the difficult situations, relationships and emotions that you are in to help find a place of calm. I focus on what it is like to be you, and assist you in building new skills to help you cope with the burdens and freedoms of life. I received an Associate’s Degree in Psychology from Lake Tahoe Community College, a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of California, Davis and a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy Counseling from the University of Nevada, Reno. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor with the National Board of Certified Counselors and a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. I enjoy working with children, teens, young adults, adults, and older adults on various topics, including stress, anxiety, depression, suicidality, sexual abuse, conflict and anger management, parenting, couples counseling, pre-marital counseling, marital counseling, family counseling, divorce, bereavement and grief. I view therapy as a supportive and safe environment where you can explore different ways of being, develop tools and skills to help you cope with the challenges you face, celebrate your successes and foster your self-exploration and discovery to help create a healthier and happier lifestyle.

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.
