Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that therapy is a gift that a person can give themselves. It is a journey that enables a person to join with me to figure out what may be getting in the way of living their best life. Each of us have wounds that can be examined. As I accompany my clients, we find ways of holding their life story in a way that enables their continued growth and builds on their resiliency to create a life that is not about suffering but about living more fully. Starting therapy takes courage. I work collaboratively---I don't hold the answers but I am honored and privileged to look for their answers with them. I bring to the table more than 60 years of life experience as well as 24 years of working in this field. I believe that each of us deserves to live our best life and I believe that working with me, as a caring and well-trained therapist, people come to new places of self-acceptance, forgiveness, self-awareness, resiliency and can go on to realize more of their hopes and dreams. I work with individuals, couples, adolescents,and families in a collabortive way. Sharing what I have learned along the way from my life experience and the training I have had, I am able to lend an objective and therapeutic perspective in a sensitive, respectful and collaborative way. I have been trained in EMDR which can be helpful to people who have experienced trauma and I can use this process with clients if circumstances warrant this type of intervention.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
