Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Can painful life challenges be transformed into healing opportunities? Is it possible to live with increased purpose and meaning after a major loss? Will you be strengthened in ways you never knew possible by facing your fears? Since you are now seeking therapy, something inside of you must already trust that the answer to these questions is-YES! You may think therapy is simply about solving problems or healing emotional wounds; but the process is about so much more. It is about expressing more freely who you truly are. It is about reclaiming your inner strengths, skills and wisdom. And it is about finding practical, yet creative ways to achieve your life goals. As a therapist & wellness coach of 16 years, I am experienced in working with a wide range of personal growth issues, with specialization in: HIV/AIDS: Newly Diagnosed & Long Term Survivors. Addictions: Maintenance Phase (1+ years of recovery). LGBT Issues: Coming Out, Identity/Empowerment, Adoption. Life-Transitions: Grief, Mid-Life Awakening, Bucket List Completion. Since I do not accept insurance I do offer a reduced rate of $85 per session to help make ongoing therapy more affordable for your growth/healing needs.

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.
