Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Have you reached the point that you’ve had it with stuck negative feelings, thoughts or patterns in your life? Are you ready for a change and want that change to come as safely and steadily as possible? I honor your determination, and am eager to work together with you in service of your healing.
My view of healing is not that we “grow” a new you. I make use of Bowen Family Systems theory (fantastic for relationships) and EMDR (a well validated treatment for trauma, plus Performance Enhancement) to calm the blockages that keep your natural inner talents and strengths from shining forth. In other words, my goal is to help your true personality to thrive.
Please call me soon. If I am full, which I often am, I know other clinicians with similar skills, inspiration and dedication. I’d be happy to give you their names.

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.
