Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Welcome to my practice. I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in private practice in Danville, CA. with over 18 years experience in offering mind-body-spirit psychotherapy to individuals, couples, families and groups. I have led groups for teens, men and sexual offenders and worked for Contra Costa County's Children's Protective Services for several years. In addition, I have taught developmental psychology and neuroscience for the past 15 years at Diablo Valley College and John F. Kennedy University, and am an experienced workshop leader, coach and speaker. My practice is based on an integral model. I see each person as whole, and honor all aspects of the person in the healing process. We create a safe therapeutic relationship where you have the opportunity to genuinely reflect on your life and rekindle what is lost or absent. Psychotherapy is frequently viewed as an intermittent, lifelong process where individuals seek services for varying periods of time as the need arises. My model holds brief and longer-term therapy as being equally valuable, where length of therapy and treatment approach are determined by the presenting concerns and client preference.

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.
