Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
There Is Nothing Wrong With You, Life Is Just Harder Than You Ever Expected. Getting lost in your circumstances is not a disease. However, sometimes without realizing it, you blindly do the same old thing over and over and expect a different result every time. That is, until you just can't take it anymore. Then how you "really feel" becomes stronger than how you"should feel." This can feel very uncomfortable, however, it is the beginning of finding yourself again in all the situations in your life. This therapy helps you, step by step, grow and learn something new to face what life has brought. Feel the freshness of new possiblities from how you really feel and how you really want to live your life.

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.
