Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I absolutely love my job as a therapist and truly enjoy being able to help others reach a high level of satisfaction in their careers and in their personal relationships. My approach is mostly collaborative-I believe in tailoring my treatment plan for each individual patient with their input and coordinating care with other health care providers, when appropriate. I specialize in the treatment of couples conflict, stress-management, anxiety, eating disorders, sexual dysfunction, and mood disorders, although I also have experience working with grief, personality challenges, vocational transitions, family life transitions, and substance use. Sometimes all that is needed for a person to make lasting changes is a little bit of guidance or the support of someone who will listen and provide unbiased feedback. Let me be that sounding board for you, your relationship, or your family.

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.
