Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My specific and licensed scope of practice is that which deals with the interpersonal. In other words, I will work side by side with you on solving those relationship issues that are causing you anger, depression, anxiety, frustration, and grief. I have a lot of experience dealing with those who are survivors of sexual and physical abuse; those who are living with and working along side those with rigid personality disorders; individuals who are living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses; and those who have developmental and physical disabilities and the families that care for them. I am known as an extremely kind, compassionate, and empathic soul with small town manners and a big heart, who has extensive personal and professional history with extreme mental illness. I also know a lot about working with those dealing with monocular vision impairment, being blind in one eye myself. I am a former stage actor and Hollywood Story Analyst, who spent many years developing my therapeutic craft in the non-profit realm as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I am passionate about Depth Psychology and the idea that the Soul and the Imagination are one and the same.

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.
