Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
BREAK FREE FROM YOUR RESTRICTIVE PATTERNS...EMBRACE YOUR OPPORTUNITIES! My education and past experience in the world of psychology and business has allowed me to work within both industries that I am passionate about. In my years of experience in therapy, I have had the privilege to work with clients on their journey through challenges of depression, stress, anxiety, grief, relationship problems (work, couples and family), [teenagers and Children…..] and parenting issues. The age ranges of these clients have been from 5 to 64. I have had the honor to work with diverse cultures, some of which are Eastern European, Indian, Asian, Middle –Eastern, European and Caucasian. Many of my clients have chosen to continue into long term therapy for support through life’s future challenges. In addition to being a licensed therapist, I have over 15 years of experience in the field of Business Operations, Human Resources and Project Management. My business experience was gathered in the Investment Management /Financial Services, Airline and Software Industries. I have a Masters in Personnel Management, and am a certified Project Manager with PMI. I continuously strive to remain current with the challenges in today's workplace to understand your perspective and use my skills in therapy, in collaboration with you, to achieve your therapy goals. Approach to Therapy In therapy, I work with you to understand your work relationships and their impact on your significant relationships within your social system and vice versa. We work together on creating an awareness and understanding of the unconscious thoughts and beliefs underlying your problems so that you can break free from your restrictive patterns and inhibitions. This allows you to embrace your opportunities, help promote your growth, improve your efficiency and productivity at work, and resolve your symptoms. In discussing these issues within the context of therapy, my hope for you is that you have the freedom to enjoy both your work and family relationships and that you continue to flourish successfully in both. Give yourself the gift of therapy. Call me at 925-365-6968 to make an appointment.

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.
