Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Seeking professional assistance is a sign of courage and a willingness to deal with life's many changes. Part of what (art, hypno, play, & talk) therapy can do is clarify what you are seeing, thinking, and feeling. Have you ever felt unclear about what to say, how to say it, or perhaps there are no words yet? Have you experienced trauma and now you are stuck in the present and unable to move forward? I can help you safely interact with trauma and discover where you are stuck and what needs to happen to heal. I can help you bridge the non-verbal and clarify the verbal by helping you access your creative resources through visualization. Art is one way to make a concrete visualization, and it does not require art skills. All you need is a desire to be unstuck and grow. I am a Registered Art Therapist (ATR), Certified Hypnotherapist, and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working in the Greater Roseville area. I offer counseling, psychotherapy, art therapy, and hypnotherapy in a private practice office located in Rocklin, CA, where my focus is with individual adults and couples (partnered or married). I also offer trauma recovery and processing with EMDR and skills building around the areas of anxiety, depression, anger, and self-esteem. I believe in a holistic approach to therapy, integrating the physical, mental, and spiritual. I also believe that heart(inner spirit) and the use of creative expression (art) when explored with your mind(awareness) promote your overall well-being (health); hence my motto 'HeartMind and Health'. Together, you and I work as a team to discover and nurture your inner resources and build supports for your growth and health. I can help with the unique journey that is you and help you be your best.

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.
