Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been working with adolescents and their families for over 15 years now with very good success. My in-depth work and personal experience has allowed me to serve adolescents in a highly effective manner. Adolescence is a time of great stress and frustration for many parents as well as their children. Empathy, understanding, and mutual respect are often the key to resolving multiple issues. Parents' role is to teach their children how to grow up and become a respectful, loving, and confident memeber of society. However, with a high rate of divorce, separation, and re-marriage these tasks become increasingly difficult. Parental absence, loss, or detachment, especially of fathers frequently creates disruption for the family unit. Time, patience, love, and committment when combined with guidance most often leads to happier children, parents, and families.

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.
