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.

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.
