Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been a Licensed Marriage, Family and Child Therapist since 1990. I identify as Anishinaabe (Chippewa) and have a holistic, family systems perspective. My area of expertise has been adolescents and women’s issues, multicultural diversity, substance abuse/recovery, spirituality, healing from trauma of abuse (both giver and receiver), grief and loss, stress management and most importantly: self care. I have been a presenter addressing family violence at National Native Wellness conferences for a number of years. I am a contracted service provider for Cal Works. I am also a service provider for the Victim Witness program. I offer a sliding fee scale for those who do not carry insurance. I am on the referral list for students attending Antioch University West and am provider for a variety of EAP'S.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
