Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am specially trained to work with children, adults, couples, and families. My treatment approach provides support and feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients to find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. My clinical approach is systemic in nature, as I view people not as individuals in isolation, but as part of a larger family system. In this way, relationships, communication, and interactions between people are emphasized. Even when working with individuals, this approach can be quite helpful and empowering. My theoretical approach is eclectic and strength-based. In this way, I am able to utilize various theories and techniques to provide an appropriate fit for each client with whom I work. Some of these theories and techniques include, but are not limited to, a structural-strategic approach, a cognitive-behavioral approach, a solution-focused approach, and narrative techniques. In-session excercises are also used as well as between-session homework assignments and tasks. These theories and techniques are are also helpful when working with children and are often combined with additional tools such as art and play therapy. The mission of my practice is to provide a safe and caring environment in which clients are able to address their unique situations. I am committed to providing support, understanding, and compassion to my clients while helping them to identify and reach their therapeutic goals.

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.
