Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in practice since 1990 working with adults, adolescents and couples. In my work as a counselor, I focus on the healthy integration of mind, body and spirit. My approach is primarily Cognitive and Transpersonal focusing on alleviating chronic feelings of anger, jealousy, anxiety, judgment, resentment, blame, helplessness and so on. These states consume our energy and are not supportive of our physical health and well being. I offer practical tools and alternative perspectives helping to consciously release and reprogram unsupportive thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. Focus is given to self esteem and authenticity as important aspects of wellbeing.

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.
