Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I love my work! I love clients and exploring their lives with them. I am profoundly moved and honored by your willingness to include me in your process, and I derive tremendous value being able to share this experience with you.

I do not believe that anyone is “broken” or “disordered,” but that we are all exactly perfect just the way we are right here and right now.

Pursuing therapy is a tremendous act of courage, and it is unreasonable for me to expect you to go places I am unwilling to go. I am not an ‘outside observer’ with you, but an active companion and guide.

I work from a Holistic perspective, where every individual is a complete and integrated whole – body, mind, heart and spirit – and I am guided by knowledge, wisdom, information, and inspiration from these same sources in the work we do together.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
