Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I traveled the world as a journalist before becoming a psychotherapist, and my first career taught me respect for individual differences and many different cultures. While remaining true to the ethical and legal standards of my profession, I am aware of the limitations of psychiatric diagnosis. Many of my clients were enormously relieved to learn that thoughts and behaviors which deeply troubled them were well within normal limits. My training included work on three psychiatric wards, a substance abuse agency, a family mental health agency, a gay men's mental health agency, and an agency working with HIV clients who also had substance abuse and psychiatric diagnoses including bipolar disorder and major depression.

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.
