Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
For the past ten years, I have been helping children, adolescents, young adults and families develop the skills they need to reduce their suffering. In my work across demographics, I developed a strong passion for helping girls and young women navigate social, emotional and societal challenges. I have worked extensively with adolescents and young women and their families to create space for alternative perspectives, in the midst of ideas that appear to be quite opposite. Since becoming intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), I look at therapy as a balancing act—accepting what is and asking for change simultaneously. This parallels the ideas that so often become polarized in families with one person pushing another to change their ways and the other person requesting that they accept them as they are. In coming to a place of balance, I have found that many families and adolescents increase their ability to effectively communicate, negotiate, and engage with one another. When there is space for this to occur, many problems are solved. DBT incorporates mindfulness in which I have a strong interest. I utilize its techniques both personally and professionally.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
