Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Therapy can be a rich and powerful experience of growth and change. Through an exploration of patterns of thoughts and behaviors, we can uncover a more authentic you; one freer from the stuck feelings of repetitive, discouraging patterns, and one grounded in a more comfortable sense of self.

Depression, anxiety, grief, and shame, are often some of the core emotions underlying the issues that bring people to therapy. Our minds and bodies naturally want to move us away from these pains. Yet to achieve a lasting remedy of these problems, a compassionate acknowledgement and ‘digestion’ of one’s emotional life can follow pain to be resolved.

I have a diverse training within the depth, psychoanalytic perspective, drawing on a humanistic approach as well as a faith in our minds abilities to seek integration and healing.

I encourage you to contact me for an initial consult to see if I can be helpful.

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.
