Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have enjoyed working with individuals, couples, children and families for twenty years. In my work, I help clients increase their self-awareness, learn to make healthy changes, and cope effectively with difficulties, losses and transitions. My specialties include anxiety, depression, relationship issues and grief and loss. I provide both short and long-term psychotherapy, working with each client to develop and achieve specific goals designed to promote autonomy, enhance fulfillment and create success in all areas of life. My knowledge, compassion and deep sense of commitment to my clients and their needs leads to a productive and meaningful therapy experience.

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.
