Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I offer integrative therapy with an emphasis on empowering clients to make the choices and changes that are right for their unique personalities and situations. Because I trust the strengths of the clients that I see, I do not believe that therapy needs to last a very long time. I offer non-judgmental support, curiosity about who the person is and what they believe, and a collaborative approach to imaginative problem solving. This may or may not involve explorations of longstanding childhood issues. I enjoy working with couples, and am not intimidated by arguments. I love working with children and their families, and offer play and art work with children and teens. I do sand tray work with adults who are interested. I have a particular interest in working with people who are struggling with substance use, such as alcohol and drugs, who think they want to change things, but don't want to go the traditional 12 step, AA route. The approach is know as harm reduction. It is relatively new in Southern California, but is well established elsewhere. I run a group to support people working this way.

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.
