Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Life is often filled with challenges which affect each of us in different ways. I believe, that how we approach and overcome those challenges, help to shape us and allow us to experience life to the fullest.

I began my Marriage and Family Psychotherapy practice here in Glendora out of a desire to use my life experience, education, and passion to help serve the health needs of our community, and the surrounding cities.

Through my experience in a variety of settings, I have discovered that building a supportive relationship through therapy creates a safe place to explore life struggles, understand difficult issues, learn new skills, enrich relationships, and work through situations in order to lead a more fulfilling life.

Therefore, creating a safe and supportive environment, where you can feel comfortable, is essential to my practice. In that setting, we can collaborate on how best to understand your situation, identify your goals, and find solutions. I bring a varied theoretical approach, centered on forms of therapy including psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral, brief/solution focused, and ensuring sensitivity to cultural diversity.

My services include counseling individuals, couples & families,as well as fascilitating groups. My primary areas of expertise are eating disorders, relationships, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, veterans and their families, parenting, Endometriosis, Interstitial Cystitis, and Infertility counseling.

I welcome you to browse my website, learn more about my background and experience, and see if I may be of support to you. Please don’t hesitate to call and schedule a consultation.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.
