Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Welcome, my name Dorene Paul and I am a licensed therapist and marriage counselor. I have had the honor of practicing therapy for 16 years, working with adults, couples and youth with a wide variety of issues. In my experience, each person comes to therapy with a unique set of experiences, feelings, issues, gifts, goals, therefore I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, from cognitive to current psychodynamic approaches and EMDR for those dealing with past trauma. In therapy I am your companion and counselor on a deeply meaningful journey. I specialize in working with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, loss, past trauma, relationship issues and substance abuse. My approach is to align with you and use the most appropriate therapeutic models for both the individual and for the issues. My ultimate goal is for you to become the most joyful, grounded and authentic person you can be. And for your life to become richer and more comfortable as you move through it with the confidence to accomplish your goals.

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.
