Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Having practiced as a Marriage, Family Therapist since 1977, I realized what an important decision it is to enter into a therapeutic relationship with someone. I feel privileged that people place their trust and confidence in my ability to assist them in making meaningful changes in their lives. My specialties include recovery issues, anxiety, depression and couples counseling. I seek to empower people to use our relationship as a way to gain insight into their own abilities and strengths and utlize the assistance of others to complement their talents.

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.
