Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
It is my passion to help people transform their lives. I use a variety of techniques, in a safe, warm, and caring environment, to help individuals and families to overcome difficult challenges and achieve the change and growth they desire. Working together as a team I can help you to gain insight and problem-solving skills. My specialty is helping people overcome childhood pain, abuse, and trauma. In general, I can help you with depression & anxiety, stress, suicidal thoughts, self-injury, Posttraumatic Stress, dissociation (including DID/Multiple Personality Disorder), communication skills, relationship issues, parenting, self-esteem, and personal and spiritual growth. Life challenges, stress, conflict, & past memories, can be difficult, confusing, & scary. They're also opportunities to heal, grow, and transform your life. I believe in building positive relationship/collaboration, optimism, empathy, & humor to help you better understand and heal from whatever issues you may be facing. I have facilitated many groups, such as "Adults Molested as Children" and conducted classes/workshops on parenting, leading to co-authoring a book, "The Authentic Parent: Developing your natural gifts to become the parent you always wanted to be." Call for free consultation. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

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.
