Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you tired of repeating the same patterns with the same painful results? Are your relationships with family or friends disappointing? Are you facing a challenging transition or a life-shattering crisis? These are some of the ways I have helped people:

  • Improve communication with family, friends, co-workers.
  • Heal emotional wounds from recent or childhood traumas.
  • Overcome problems which may have led to harming oneself or others.
  • Successfully navigate major life transitions: leaving home, marriage, parenting, divorce, career change.
  • Overcome feelings of grief and loss.
  • Explore spiritual questions and concerns.
  • Learn stress-reduction techniques, such as mindfulness meditation.

    For twelve years I counseled suvivors and perpetrators of sexual abuse and their families in the Giarretto Child Sexual Abuse Treatment Program. I have led Survivors of Suicide grief support groups. I have worked in the Santa Clara University Counseling Services, counseling students with a variety of problems. I am also skilled in mindfulness meditation.

    Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
    Irvine, CA

    I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
