Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I view counseling as a journey in which people can choose to take positive steps towards a healthier and more abundant life. Your story and goals are important to me. I will work with you to identify your goals and to enable and to reach them. Your commitment and active participation is a key to your progress in counseling. I will respect you as a unique and special person and do my best to bring out the best in you. I have provided counseling and social services since 1977 in community, church, and school settings. I consider it a privilege to have your trust and to share in your journey. I am dedicated to practicing mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health for myself. This enables me to give my counselees my full attention, unconditional positive regard, and encouragement.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
