Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
“The Beginning of Wisdom is Self Awareness.”
This simple statement is a lifelong process, and central to the work I do as a psychotherapist. Taking the time and space to know ourselves can be exhilarating, but it can be daunting and sometimes terrifying when done alone. Working with another person through the complexities of our lives makes the endeavor richer and much more satisfying. My work with clients is intended to be a shared, collaborative experience.

Psychodynamic work focuses on not just the reduction of symptoms, but also on fostering the most of an individual’s psychological capacities and resources; whether it means more satisfying relationships, tolerating a wider range of emotions or facing life’s challenges with greater freedom and flexibility.

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.
