Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My West LA office is conveniently located in a three story handicapped accessed building. My treatment offices contain a state of the art play therapy room with sink, sand tray and numerous arts/crafts and playthings, a fully equipped kitchen for snacks, drinks and family work. My background includes 30 years in the field of Education as a teacher and principal, and 25 years as a psychotherapist, working with preschoolers through adults.

I have 3 Master’s Degrees – Education, Psychology, and Marriage, Family and Child Counseling. My Ph.D. in Clinical Child Psychology extends to an understanding of development issues throughout the life cycle. I treat adults, couples and seniors. I’m skilled in family work: blended, re-unification and dissolution. My strengths are using creative arts in treatment. I use Animal Assisted Therapy, as my 3 Delta Pet Partner Therapy Dogs work with patients at UCLA Hospitals/PAC Team and R.E.A.D. in schools and libraries.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
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.
