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
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.
