Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with culturally/ethnically diverse adults and adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with intimate relationships or school/work performance. Together we address feelings of depression, anger and anxiety, problems with addictive behaviors, social isolation, histories of trauma and families troubled by divorce, mental illness, physical or sexual abuse.

My first aim is to establish a warm, trusting, and collaborative relationship in which you feel safe to explore what left you to try therapy. Then allowing space for listening, reflection and honest talk, I can help you find the courage to face painful truths and make healthy changes in your life.

This kind of work fosters kinder, saner relationships with yourself and others over time as the insights, experience of caring support, and practice of open communication are integrated into your everyday life.

Sliding scale fee, MediCal, Medicare, and Victims of Crime Compensation accepted. LGBTQQI welcome. Sex positive. Fat friendly.
