Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that each of us comes to form a sense of our self based on our early experiences and the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors ingrained by such experiences. I also understand that our environment has a great influence on us and know that each of us possess an innate strength for healing. Subsequently, in working with clients, I consider early life experiences (Object Relations); age and life transitions (developmental theories); the impact of the environment and the family unit (systems theory); the role of thoughts, feelings, and actions (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy); and client’s resources (Solution-Focused Therapy). In addition, I frequently utilize exploration, psycho-education, task-assignment, and play and/or art activities.

In addition to being a school-based clinical counselor working with high school students with Emotional Disturbance I am in private practice in Palo Alto providing clinical counseling for children, adolescents, parents, families, and, occasionally, adults. I have a deep passion for working with youth and parents and have had the pleasure of working with children, adolescents, adults, families, parent-child units, and couples from varous cultural backgrounds.

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.
