Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My goal is to help people notice what's really in their way, and support them in deciding what to do about it. How that happens depends on who you are and what you want and need. You're a unique individual that I've never met: I don't plan to use any off-the-shelf technique. My only plan is for us to look together at how your life is going, how you'd like it to go, what gets in your way, and what options you have. If that's interesting, give me a call! (an email is even better because I'll answer faster)

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.
