Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
“May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
to postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.”

I love this passage of the John O’Donahue poem “A Morning Offering” because it speaks so directly to the yearning that we all have to be whole, fulfilled, and free of fear. What that looks like in each of our lives is unique. I strive to ensure that your therapeutic process, and our therapeutic relationship, is respectful of what is most meaningful to you. I work with individuals to increase self-understanding and respectful self-relationship so that your range of choices increases, helping you to navigate changes in your life towards the resolution of unsatisfying patterns and greater fulfillment. I work with couples, utilizing Imago Relationship Therapy. You can find more about me at my website: DeborahLeeds.com

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.
