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
    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.
