Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe living a successful life is a powerful process, full of transitions and complex challenges. In order to navigate these challenges successfully, many of us need support or guidance at some time in our lives. I focus on helping children, adults and families by identifying areas of strength, and using these strengths to explore new perspectives in life. As a humanistic and cognitive behavioral counselor, my first goal is to create a safe environment for my clients to explore personal needs. By allowing your voice to be honored in a time of crisis, life's transitions can be navigated more easily. When counseling children and teens, using play therapy and expressive art therapy helps establish a safe environment. Once a child feels safe, he or she can start to identify and experience difficult emotions. Through the process of play therapy, children start to heal from fears or trauma.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
