Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I help people who struggle with relationships. I believe that anxiety, depression, addiction issues, and lack of intimacy with family and friends are frequently the result of being out of touch with ourselves. Working with a therapist you trust can help deepen your relationship with yourself and thereby enable you to form deeper connections with those you love. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore your life and your feelings; a place where you can experiment with being your whole self. I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents, and have training and experience in a wide range of mental health issues, including trauma and PTSD, intimate partner violence, grief counseling, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug addiction, co-dependency and depression. I work from a psychodynamic perspective and blend evidenced-based practices with an artful approach to working with psyche. I offer therapy in both English and Spanish and am also conversationally fluent in French. In addition to my private practice, I also teach in the MA Counseling program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am happy to answer any questions you have about therapy or the therapeutic process.

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.
