Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in San Jose, California. I believe that individuals possess the key to their own well being; however, sometimes life experiences, especially those related to early relationships, can present obstacles that are difficult to overcome. Having to face these obstacles may result in the construction of self-protective barriers, which hide the “true self”. Most people come up against some sort of barriers at least once in their lives. For many people when this happens, it is helpful to have an objective, professional ally to collaboratively look at these areas of “stuckness”. Teamwork is an important component in making therapy successful and I make every effort to be 100% present during every therapy session. A strong therapist-client relationship is foundation of trust and key to creating a safe place where individuals can open up with their feelings and not be judged. I believe talking about what is on your mind enables people to see things from a different perspective. Sometimes seeing things from a different perspective can be a key ingredient in promoting personal growth and making better choices in the future. A goal of psychotherapy is that get to know themselves in such a way that they realize their full potential and are able to live more authentically.
