Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am passionate about working with children, adolescents and couples that seek peace and healing while making positive life changes. I also enjoy helping blended families navigate the myriad of challenges to build a new sense of normal. My primary goal with children and adolescents is to assist them in reaching their full potential. As a private educator for many years, a parent and therapist, I know that life can be incredibly challenging at times for some adolescents and children. By providing warm, empathic therapy I assist in facilitating positive choices, while overcoming various life obstacles, to ultimately move forward to achieve all that is possible. I have helped children and adolescents who struggle with many issues including peer relations, family issues, grief, divorce, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues and school challenges.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
