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
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.
