Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My “style” of therapy is one of being very genuine. I offer psychotherapy in a warm and friendly environment and often mix in humor with the work that I do. People’s needs are as varied and unique as are the different ways therapy can be approached. I tailor my approach to fit your specific requirements. However, there are certain basic beliefs that I hold. I believe that people come to me with something that they’ve been struggling with and they can’t see the solution because they’re in the middle of it. They get “stuck” in a story that defines them or something about them and they need help moving beyond that. I am very practical in the work that I do – I believe that therapy should address the issue(s) that has you “stuck” and you need to learn how to move forward; we all need to live and function in this world and we want to be happy! I help you move forward through a combination of education, cognitive behavioral interventions, active listening mixed with relaxation and respect for your personal goals.

About My Practice

Office Hours
My offices hours are typically Tuesday 12 - 8 Thursday 12 - 8 Saturday 1:30 - 5:30 Special appointments are available
I provide a wide range of therapy and counseling to a diverse population. I work with people of all ages and from all walks of life. I work with individuals on a wide range of topics from life-transitions to more severe mental health issues. I work with couples who are struggling with their current relationship and also couples who have yet to make the commitment to marriage. I also work with families: new families that are just forming and long-standing families that are facing issues that they are not able to address in isolation. I offer Anger Management, in group or individual sessions and will be offering a Mens' group soon.

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.
