Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in codependency resulting from childhood trauma. If we experience neglect or abuse as children, we get the message (usually unintended by our parents) that we aren't worth protecting. This results in low self-esteem and broken antennae unable to recognize dysfunction in others. We struggle with a lack of boundaries in our adult relationships and rely on others' opinions of us for our own sense of self worth (codependency). The coping mechanism of living in your head to avoid feeling got you through childhood, but now it's undermining you in your adult relationships. My passion is guiding my clients away from being overly vulnerable to others' opinions and actions, and developing their own voices. This involves "trusting your gut" and identifying feelings, which allows you to set healthy physical and emotional boundaries. I also facilitate group and one-on-one anger management. My credentials include a Master's in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University LA., Certified Anger Management Specialist, and extensive training in Mindful Parenting at the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. I work with a range of mental health issues, from mild anxiety and depression to severe addiction and eating disorders.
