Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
One of the most satisfying joys of being a therapist is witnessing clients moving away from their suffering and stuckness, and closer to a more satisfying, fulfilled, healthy and whole way of living. I believe that you hold the answers to your questions, have the ability to connect with your own wisdom, healing and bliss, and are the ultimate expert in your therapeutic journey. I am simply the guide and witness of the process. I help individuals, children and their families to understand and heal from the hurt or trauma that we experience on this journey of life. My approach is client-centered, compassionate and always honors your unique experience. The work that we do together is collaborative. Ultimately, we will strive for a deeper understanding of the issues so that you can discover more insight into the strategies and problem solving most beneficial for you.

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.
