Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Warm, effective Santa Barbara Therapist.

When you’re going through difficult times, you want and need support and understanding from someone who “gets it” … someone who understands emotional pain and how it is affecting your whole life… someone who is respectful, trustworthy, non-judgmental and caring.

It’s okay to ask for help. It’s a sign of strength and courage because, even though it may be frightening, you’re allowing your vulnerabilities to show.

It’s okay to lean on someone while sorting out what is working in your life and what isn’t.

Therapy offers a safe and confidential place in which we’ll explore what it is that is getting in the way of living the life you had hoped for. Whether you are having trouble with stress, anxiety, depression, eating problems, relationship problems, low self-esteem, or your own inner critic, we can sit down, together, and figure it out.

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.
