Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with people who feel stuck and are having difficulty moving forward. This may be a lingering sadness, or perhaps fears that are keeping someone from doing all they would like to do. Often it involves long-standing ways of doing life that are no longer working for them. or it may involve relationship issues – difficulties sustaining a relationship, struggles with getting close to others, or patterns of self-defeating behaviors in relationships. I help people with work-related issues - not getting along with others, or perhaps personal obstacles that keep you from achieving your full potential. People see me to get help dealing with self-defeating behaviors that interfere with getting what they want or need for themselves. I am known for having a commitment to integrity and truthfulness in the therapeutic relationship. I work with clients from a broad spectrum of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

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.
