Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
If we have the chance to meet, we will begin talking about the areas of your life where you would like help. You will be an active part in the therapy process. We’ll probably start with talking about important events in your life that you are having strong feelings about. You can expect to gain some insight into your behavior patterns. As your therapist, I will help you explore your beliefs about yourself and the people in your life.

Therapy will help you find hope whether you’re sad, worried, or having trouble moving past a troubling situation. Most painful feelings come from negative thinking. You will discover basic beliefs that have been getting in your way. By learning how to change negative beliefs, new behaviors become impossible for you. With new thoughts and behaviors, you begin to have a more positive attitude as well as constructive feelings.

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.
