Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in the treatment of individual's and couples. If you feel you're at a crossroads in your life, or if you feel stuck I can try to help you move forward. I have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, addiction and trauma. I believe that human beings have a tremendous capacity to heal and to be resilient. Coming to therapy can be a positive first step to getting help and to heal from the inside out. I follow a collaborative approach to therapy and draw upon many different interventions and techniques that specifically fit each client's treatment goals and problems. I believe that therapy should be about working together in a non-judgmental warm environment and this is the foundation that can evoke change within a person.

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.
