Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
If you are reading this, take heart, as you've already demonstrated your courage. Many people, if not most, never seek the help they need, professionally or personally. As a therapist, my philosophy is that every person is unique in their own way, and this requires a unique solution to the challenges you face. People are incredibly complex, and many times this is why cookie cutter interventions often fall flat, because the client is not fully understood before interventions are prescribed. You know yourself better than anyone, and my goal as a therapist is to tap this knowledge and, through the filter of my own broad experience and insight, work with you to develop goals and steps to these goals, in order to overcome the hurdles that life has thrown at you. I also believe in the power of humor! I believe that therapy does not always have to be this serious and intense process 100 percent of the time. Therapy can be whatever you the client need it to be, and humor can be a valuable component to therapy.

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.
