Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I deeply enjoy my work as an MFT. I work from a strength-based approach and value feedback from clients regarding their treatment. I have a particular interest in working with families experiencing grief and loss and draw on my former experience as a Hospice volunteer. I also enjoy working with the challenges that can arise in the transition from adolescence to early adulthood. I am comfortable working with anxiety, depression, parenting issues, and relationship stress.

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.
