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.
