Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Psychotherapist, I am passionate about supporting my clients in finding balance and ease in all aspects of their lives. I work with individuals of all ages to help explore the inner landscape of their experience, and to identify and address obstacles that prevent them from engaging in life more fully. The focus of my work with clients is to facilitate a move through the stressors of past and present, to eliminate what is no longer useful, and to focus on all that is promising and possible. I bring to my practice extensive experience as a psychotherapist, college professor, and school counselor. I completed my graduate work in Integral Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and my EMDR training from the Sonoma Psychotherapy Institute. I am licensed by the California Board of Behavior Sciences as a Marriage and Family Therapist, and am a Certified EMDR Therapist with the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA). I am a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and a Clinical Supervisor. I offer psychotherapy services and EMDR in both Spanish and English.
