Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with extensive experience working with individuals, couples, and families on a wide range of issues. Over the years, I have helped clients develop inner strength, centeredness, and personal empowerment as they face relationship issues, depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, grief & loss, separation and divorce, serious illness, and other life transitions. While we know that emotions have no timeline, I am very focused on helping you in identifying goals and working consistently towards them. At the same time, I am empathic and creative, and am invested in attuning myself to your needs. My perspective is multicultural and LGBTIQ affirming. In addition to talk therapy, I also offer and extensively use other modalities, especially yoga, expressive arts therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (placed by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense in the "A" category as “strongly recommended” for the treatment of trauma; see http://www.emdrhap.org/content/what-is-emdr/). In addition to being a therapist, I have been a professor and a professional-level yoga instructor for almost 15 years. Born on the East Coast, I was raised in the LA area, and have lived in San Diego since 2001.
