Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am honored to work with individuals seeking growth, change, or insight in their lives. I believe we hold answers within us that can be discovered and furthered through the therapy relationship. Every person needs to be seen and heard. We also need the time set aside to focus on what really matters to us and sometimes what brings us pain or holds us back. Rather than ignore it any longer, you’re taking the first step toward giving more attention to your own life. I look forward to sharing that journey with you.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
