Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe people are seeking their souls within themselves, especially in times of grief or trauma. Somehow during times of major change, loss or crisis, being human fails us. We get tired, confused, isolated, overwhelmed, demanding or self-destructive. I’ve seen it repeatedly in clients with addiction or abuse histories who cut off from their strengths and needs to avoid being vulnerable. Often they get lost. They don’t know who to be, how to be, or what to do. Creating a place that is safer, with a person who is truly present, can help regain realness and balance. It’s rarely easy. Healing can hurt, especially in places that don’t show up in an X-Ray but sometimes being human is about truth and hope.

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.
