Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in practice for over 20 years providing therapy for individuals, couples, latency-age children and teens, as well as doing groups. My orientation is existential-humanistic in that I believe when individuals are provided with a healing environment, they ten to grow toward self-actualization. A large part of the effectiveness of my work is based on the relationship that develops between me and my clients. This isn’t to suggest that everyone is a good “fit,” but that I view the connection as vital to a successful outcome. I tend to work with people in a collaborative manner, not a prescriptive one. I do feel fortunate to be able to truly say that I love what I do.

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.
