Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Greetings. I am an ex litigation attorney who gave up that warm, fuzzy pursuit to become a psychotherapist. Dealing with a high-pressure, legal career forced me to become an expert in stress reduction. I also specialize in working with depressed clients, anxious clients, trauma victims and substance abusers. I work with individuals, couples and families. I addition to my years of experience in private practice, I also spent almost three years as the Director of Adult Psychotherapy Services at a community mental health center. I've worked with clients from diverse backgrounds of all kinds. Through a combination of empathetic listening, analysis and interventions, I assist my clients in discovering and overcoming the blocks in their lives. To me, successful therapy is that which helps a person to feel vibrant and self-expressed both individually and relationally.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
