Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I bring to the therapy room over twenty years of experience in child development. Children are able to express themselves, solve problems and grow when provided with an atmospere of acceptance, support and warmth within the safety of a structured environment. My primary role as a therapist is in providing these conditions. Secondly, I act as a facilitator in your conversation with yourself, your partner, or your children - helping you to discover a deeper, broader appreciation of the problem. Understanding the systems (including family of origin, community and culture) within which these issues arise is important. We will collaborate on exploring possible solutions as you discover the courage to make gradual, empowering changes in your life, your relationships, and your family.

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.
