Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I can help you lift your mood, calm your anxiety and panic attacks, walk through grief, and manage your anger. I can teach you social skills and help you with relationships. I am a pre-marital counselor and couples therapist and enjoy seeing couples as well as individuals. My style is practical, efficient, active, and non-stuffy. I am down to earth, authentic, like to add in humor, and use a cultural lense to customize your treatment. I have worked with people with difficulties ranging from mild to those with severe mental illness. I am trained in EMDR which is a really helpful alternative to talk therapy when working with trauma/posttraumatic stress. I am fluent in Spanish and offer some home therapy for those with disabilities or agoraphobia.

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.
