Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Marriage and Family therapist in private practice. I work with individuals, couples, and families in short and long-term psychotherapy. We work together to explore memories of the relational dynamics of the individual’s family, the feelings those dynamics created for the individual as a child, and how the individual now relates to those feelings and memories. Understanding these dynamics and freeing up these old, pushed-away feelings and memories helps one to effect positive change in their life and not repeat what has caused suffering in the past. I find that this type of work allows us to develop a more fulfilling way of relating to others and to ourselves. I have experience working with a broad range of issues--from those who are experiencing trouble in their relationships and families to more severe difficulties: adult survivors of abuse, emotionally disturbed adolescents, individuals suffering from protracted depression and unremitting anxiety.
