Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in private practice for 11 years, working in the San Ramon area. I work for several non-profit organizations as well, serving youth in the foster care system and seniors living in low-income housing. This is an ideal blend for me because it provides ongoing opportunities for growth and connections with other mental health providers. I believe that, for me, not maintaining a full-time private practice enables me to give complete attention to each of my individual clients and to approach each session with an open heart. I am particularly interested in grief and loss, cultural concerns, aging and caregiving issues, among others. I also love to help people through periods of transition in their lives, to empower them to make healthy descisions for themselves. I don't work with insurance companies but I do maintain a sliding scale, and have for all the years of my practice.
