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
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.
