Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Healing arises from consciousness and awareness. Our true nature inherently knows what is the right action for us, and our suffering in life arises from being blocked from our feelings and understandings. The path to freedom is being open to the joys and sorrows of life. My work is to help people reconnect with themselves and to see through the structures and beliefs they have built from the past that create their issues in the present. I help clients explore the patterns that cause their pain both intellectually and experientially. Since clients can experience fear as part of this process, I provide a safe and nurturing holding environment for them. In my work with couples, I help them let go of the blaming and victimization that interferes with intimacy, and I teach them communication skills so that conflicts can be resolved without damaging the relationship bond.

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.
