Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Eventually we all experience grief and loss. Whether grieving the death of a family member, a pet; or facing a terminal illness, these events can turn your life “upside down.” As a therapist I help you cope with your overwhelming feelings, so that you can continue to go on with your life.

With my unique background as a therapist and former registered nurse, I have seen how the fear and reality of death and illness impact people. Without dispensing nursing advice, I provide a safe, therapeutic environment where you are free to express your feeling, and deal with your loss and sadness.

Whether you are parents of a child with special needs, a parent or family member coping with a medical issues, or you are struggling with the stressors of everyday life, I can help. I work collaboratively with you to explore your needs and being your emotional healing.

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.
