Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
After 25-years as a psychotherapist I know that the events which brought a client into counseling are really "openings" for the client to explore and review their life journey to date. My clients tell me, I am an expert in supporting this work for any number of reasons. I am a skilled, intuitive and compassionate listener. At the same time, I am direct, deeply perceiving and challenging. As a former religious sister, lay Buddhist and practising Vedantist, I tend to see the Spiritual (not religious) backdrop to all that is happening. "Soul-centered" best desccribes my work. My golden lab "Buddy" has been my co-therapist the past 10 years and remains so, now. We work out of a homey-office space located on the 7-acre grounds of a local retreat house. I am currently training as a "spiritual director" to further broaden the help I can offer clients who are seeking a deeper journey.

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.
