Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a couples therapist, mediator, communication expert and gender specialist. I work with heterosexual, bisexual, gay/lesbian/transgendered couples and individuals on a variety of issues including intimacy, stress problem solving, anger management, transition, spirituality, alternative sexualities and gender concerns, loss and self-esteem. I have an indepth awareness of ethnic and cultural diversity and when working with clients take into consideration how 'isms' in its many forms (ie - racism, sexism etc) may affect each individual. I believe the pain of personal conflict often immobilizes people and prevents them from finding the gifts that can reside in confict resolution. I work collaboratively with my clients, often within a positive, exciting and at times fun context, helping to create a sense of trust, intimacy and understanding amidst the most difficult conflicts be they individual or conflicts within a relationship.

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.
