Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that entering a respectful, compassionate therapeutic relationship can promote real change in how one thinks and feels about oneself and others, leading to greater fulfillment and enjoyment in life. I work with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, bereavement, childhood trauma, career, relationship and family problems. Our work often results in unblocking self-defeating relationship patterns, better ability to manage stress and improved communication skills. A special interest has been in alleviating the damage to self-esteem and future relationships that so often follow divorce. My approach is interactive and collaborative in both on-going intensive as well as more focused short term therapy. I am certified in the use of EMDR.

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.
