Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Change and personal growth can be painful. In our relationships, it may mean worry and confusion wondering what happened to relationships you once enjoyed. In some cases, this can develop into serious problems like depression, chronic anxiety, anger, and distancing from significant others – or even feeling confused and out-of-touch with ourselves. This affects not only our relationships but also our ability to perform at work or school, our ability to enjoy other interests, and can even cause medical problems. Feeling ‘stuck’ in our lives can make us lose sight of our hopes, aspirations, and dreams. Seeking help can be embarrassing – we become afraid of others’ reactions or unable to discuss difficult emotions. Yet, we depend on the support of our relationships to grow so that we can meet the challenges of life. Trusting relationships help us see our own genuine strengths and potential for growth. For over 20 years I have worked with clients in a way that fosters respect, acceptance, and genuineness. I will work with you to help you build trust, confidence, and satisfaction with yourself so that you may have trust and confidence in your relationships. Call me at 818.364.5646.

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.
