Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs of human beings.
-Miles Franklin.

When your YOUNG CHILD is struggling to adjust to life changes, is exhibiting difficult behaviors or is in emotional pain – PLAY THERAPY is the answer. Play therapy invites children into a play room to express themselves. How children play, and what they play with is meaningful and helps your child work through their emotions in a safe and nurturing way. Bring your child to a developmentally appropriate play room, or come and learn how to DO THE PLAY THERAPY YOURSELF. This meaningful investment allows you to PLAY an active role in your child’s healing. Read more about this training at www.kathryndebruin.com/c-p-r-child-parent-relationship-training

All TEENS, ADULTS AND COUPLES have needs for CONNECTION, SUPPORT and COMFORT. Emotional pain can be the result when these needs are not being met. When we don’t know how to deal with the flood of difficult emotions, they start to affect our actions. Before long this gives rise to all kinds of behaviors that get us into trouble. This pain becomes a negative cycle that gets in the way of you living a successful and satisfying life. Come and work towards having healthy and close relationships, alongside inner peace and freedom.

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.
