Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We are whole by nature, though early on we created patterns of protection as we learned it was unsafe to be creative, expressive-our full serves. It’s important for me to provide a safe and supportive space for people to begin their emergence into authenticity, by helping them let go of who they feel they need to be in public. Maintaining such a persona makes it difficult to connect with out people, leading to separateness and alienation. Therapy can be a place to experience connection, to learn to feel free from judgment, to begin to learn how to embrace our vitality and to make choices that feel congruent with out own needs and desires. Once we become familiar with this place, we create relationships that make us feel included in the world around us, a part of all things. We enter a clearer channel to breath, beauty, nature and community.

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.
