Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My mission as a therapist is to extend to you an environment where you are listened to, really heard, and feel understood, and where you experience support and freedom to express yourself in a confidential, compassionate and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. If you are experiencing difficulty in your marriage or committed relationship or the specific challenges of mid-life marriage; LGBTQ-specific individual or couple issues; sexual problems; the anguish of an affair; family distress; anxiety; depression; the damaging consequences of addictions; the loss of a loved one; one of a variety of life transitions, or aging challenges in yourself or a family member...and they leave you feeling frightened and alone, I welcome the opportunity to work with you to help you understand your strengths and resilience and to work through your challenges. If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or you have made the decision to move in a new direction in your life, relationship, or family, together you and I can make that happen! Working together we will discover your strengths, identify the resilience you may have forgotten you possess, identify your goals, resolve issues that are making you feel "stuck" and may be standing in your way from moving forward. Together we will work to bring about positive change and growth. You can be assured of my commitment to holding your welfare as my primary concern and consistently giving professional, competent, and ethical care. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am a psychotherapist, counselor, educator, and consultant, licensed in the State of California, to assess, and diagnose mental health issues, and provide individual treatment . As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am a relationship specialist as well. Whether you are an individual, a couple, or a family considering therapy or counseling because of relationship issues, each of you has the power to make changes in your life and the lives of your loved ones.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
