Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in guiding adolescents and individuals through the perilous journey of addictive compulsive behaviors. By utilizing a technique called Motivational Interviewing, I help individuals, couples and families enhance motivation to return to more functional ways of coping with life and its stressors. I also specialize in trauma, mood disorders and family systems issues. In treating trauma, I utilize EMDR and EFT to help reintegrate the mind and body toward optimal health.

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.
