Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with a wide variety of people in the midst of their own life journey. I focus on client-centered therapy that starts from where the client is, their needs, wants, and goals. By taking a holistic approach to therapy, and working with each individual, couple, family, and child from the foundation of their own narrative, a stronger connection for growth can be created. I am privileged by the opportunity to walk along with my clients through their lives. Together we process challenges, traumas, growings, heartaches, self-improvements, life adjustments, losses, relationship enhancing, re-building, or deepening, and anything else related to their personal experiences. The therapeutic process also helps increase the ability to communicate, process, and cope with all life brings. In therapy, I work with clients to go beyond surviving, through healing, to truly thriving. Our work together is about striving toward a life with peace, filled with joy, and hope. I work with Families, Individuals, Children, and Couples in providing therapy for, and dealing with traumas, anxieties, abuse, childhood developmental and behavioral issues, play therapy, relationship struggles or enhancements, couples therapy, family therapy, child therapy, as well as other related modalities and client concerns. I am a Floor-Time Provider for D.I.R, as well as hold a M.A. in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.

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.
