Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a mental health clinician, my role in therapy is to help clients meet personal challenges in their lives. Each of us can learn and develop new skills for improving our relationships, overcoming problems, and better managing our own behavior in stressful situations. By accepting that we cannot change or control others, we can learn to better manage ourselves in response to others. My interest in mindfulness meditation informs my work as a therapist, as does my training in the universal principles of family systems theory.
