Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
If you choose to commit to therapy with me you will find our journey to be a partnership in which ultimately you are helping yourself. That may not appeal to you at this point, but ultimately my job is to work myself out of a job. I believe individuals have the ability to uncover, rediscover, create, and foster enough internal strength to help themselves. This especially happens when they are given a safe space to explore themselves and engage with a skilled, open-hearted, non-judging, person to help them reflect, analyze, see patterns, create goals and make change. We will walk this journey together creating goals and achieving insight derived from the brilliance that shines within you. As a therapist I bring my education, a diverse career background, and my personal life experiences. A northern California resident for most of my life, I graduated from a Sonoma County high school, completed my Bachelor of Arts from UC Davis and earned two Master’s of Arts degrees from Sonoma State University. I was a School Counselor for close to ten years and then returned to school to complete my training and licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. During my training I worked at a Feminist counseling agency and as a Therapeutic Case Manager in the eldercare field. I currently reside in Santa Rosa with my husband and two teenage step-children. My personal passions are maintaining healthy living through the enjoyment of blessed family and community as well as living an active lifestyle.

About My Practice

Services
I offer individual and couples sessions, as well as focus on group and family work. Due to my background as a Junior High School Counselor and my most recent work as a Therapeutic Case Manager working with families dealing with dementia and long term mental health issues, I have a great deal of experience with families and family dynamics. Other areas of strong experience and education are creating empowerment, shifting co-dependent behaviors, dealing with body image issues especially disordered eating, handling anxiety and depression, and improving communication.

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.
