Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have had extensive training in Relational Gestalt Therapy, and work from an approach emphasizing the use of the therapeutic relationship as a primary agent of healing and change. I believe that the challenging work of personal growth is best accomplished in an atmosphere of caring and support. I have also had training and experience in working with adult survivors of molest and other childhood trauma. Able to work effectively with those wanting long term, life changing, psychotherapy, as well as those wanting short term counseling for support in dealing with a specific issue. On the Court approved lists in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties for Child Custody Evaluation and Court Mandated Co-Parenting Counseling. Author of book "Divorcing Peacefully: Why It's Essential and How To Do It".

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.
