Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Has your teen been acting out recently? Have they experimented with drugs or alcohol? Do you worry that your teenager is depressed or anxious? Have you noticed their grades or social life slipping? Does it feel difficult to get your relationship back on track with your teen? Do you want to see them have color in their life again, feel excited about a new day, make good choices and look forward to the future? I believe they can. A productive and enjoyable life can be theirs again! Let me help your teen walk this journey of healing with my understanding and kind style of counseling.

I specialize in working with teenagers who need a safe place to heal. I aim to help your teen avoid the pitfalls of an unhealthy recovery process, which can include long-lasting isolation, depression, anger, hopelessness, and bad choices in friends.

If you long for them to be strengthened and supported, but feel you've exhausted your ability to do so, I would be honored to help. Please call or email me today and let's start this journey of healing!

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.
