Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My personal style of psychotherapy is one where I accompany my clients as they take their inner journey toward recovery and personal growth. I offer support, respect, information and various modalities for facilitation of client awareness and self-discovery. A third of my practice is relegated to play therapy. I offer children an opportunity to express their emotions through the use of a variety of materials: paints and drawings, sand tray with figurines, puppets, games, clay and tape recorded metaphorical story telling. <p> When working with couples, I facilitate their awareness of effective communication, fair fight techniques and empathetic listening. Transference of family of origin issues are also explored so that couples can become healing agents for each other.

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.
