Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am an MFT and Child Development Specialist. I enjoy and have in-depth experience working with individuals, couples, and families. For the last 27 years I have been primarily focussed on working with parents, teachers, and other professionals regarding issues arising in child's development from early infancy through 8 years old. These include self-regulation, issues such as sleep, eating, toileting, impulse control (i.e. hitting), and transitions, sibling relations, separation, school adjustments, death (of someone closely involved with the child or parent), divorce, etc. I am also very interested in working with parents regarding their adjustment to the challenges of the different stages of their child's development. In addition to private in-home parenting consultation, parenting groups and school workshops and consultation, I am on the staff of the UCLA Family Development Project.

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.
