Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Child and Family therapist, I have a particular passion for counseling children. My strengths, professionally and personally, have allowed me to connect naturally and comfortably with children and teenagers. It is likely that my success may largely be due to an easy sense of humor, considerable life experience working with children and families, and an authentic caring for the family as a whole. I work toward providing a relaxed and engaged process that expands the possibility of effecting changes in a struggling family system. I am fortunate that my office facilitates the therapy process in a child-friendly space as well as a comfortable environment for the family members.

It would be my privilege to be of assistance to your child and family as you arrive at new crossroads and face new challenges. Providing your child with the gift of timely therapy may be one of the most beneficial things you can do for your family. Whether this means bringing calm to your home, reducing the stress and anxiety in your child, or establishing boundaries with sibling rivalry, as a parent you will also feel more confident and proactive simply knowing your child is receiving experienced support and assistance.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
