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
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.
