Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe very much that healing in our lives comes in many ways, but usually it is tied to relationship[s] that have kindness, respect and patience. It is my aspiration in working with individuals to incorporate these values. I am a Buddhist and have been practicing meditation for 16 years. I bring a Buddhist sensibility to my work through focusing on the present and noticing how our lives have a natural rising and falling quality to them. My Buddhist background has taught me that most people have the wisdom they already need to approach their life’s challenges, but often this wisdom gets clouded over by our inability to view ourselves clearly. With this in mind, I see my role as a therapist to help people tap into their clear seeing or wisdom, and apply that deep knowing to whatever the issues are that brought them to therapy.

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.
