Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am the Executive Director of Discovery Counseling Center, a non-profit counseling center working to help families, couples, parents and individuals work through important relational and personal life issues.

I believe that when addressing life issues it’s important to deal with the whole person, mind-body-soul. Whether we are dealing with relational issues (marriage, parenting, family) or personal issues (anxiety, depression, anger control, PTSD, etc.) some of our problems come from our genetic predispositions, some from our family of origin, some from the way we interpret life, and some from the stresses we accept into our lives.

Addressing these life issues require that we understand the contribution of each mind-body-soul area of life, and that we draw from the spiritual and relational resources available from our friends and family. Through understanding and a good support system, these issues can effectively resolved.

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.
