Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am in private practice in Lafayette. I see individuals who present with a variety of issues ranging from depression, anxiety and life transitions to relationship issues and/or substance use in themselves or their family system. I work deeply with attachment styles, deficits from childhood and finding the parts of ourselves that are needed to become whole. I see families in transition as well as adolescents who are having difficulties navigating that challenging phase of life. I also see children who are experiencing social difficulties, anxiety and/or family re-configuration, i.e. divorce. Adoption and infertility/grief work are other specialties. I love sorting through the complexities of client’s experiences and find that doing this work is immensely satisfying.

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.
