Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am located in the 'Waters at Creekside' complex at the corner of Bristol and Randolph, three blocks south of South Coast Plaza. I specialize in children, adolesents, and adults, working with individuals, couples, and families. With children I use Nondirective Play Therapy (to provide an environment to work through their fears, anxieties and issues through art or play). With adolescents and adults I use a combination of EMDR (to reduce trauma or move on from 'stuck' places), Narrative (to change our perceptions of our 'life stories,' allowing a healthier view of ourselves), Brief Solution Focused Therapy (to focus on making small concrete changes that redirect our lives more positively), and Object Relations (a longer term alternative that offers a 're-parenting' for those whose childhoods did not provide a strong foundation). I believe that all of us naturally gravitate towards health and wholeness when provided with a warm, nurturing, accepting environment.
