Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I'M A LICENSED MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST in private practice in San Anselmo and Vallejo, CA where I work with adults, couples and children for self-esteem problems, anger, sexuality issues, depression, anxiety, impulsivity and post-traumatic stress symptoms and I provide clinical supervision for interns. I also have a specialty in gender identity issues and the dysphoric feelings, grief and loss, relationship difficulties and other issues that often accompany these conditions. My style blends real life experience, knowledge, humor and compassion. My approach includes relational, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral styles, offering a flexible, responsive, non-authoritarian and empathetic quality. Confused about your gender and looking for a therapist you won't need to educate? I have 10 years of experience working with transgender individuals, devoted to helping people recover from wounds inflicted by the ignorance of others, supporting them to discover a life that is right for them. I offer counseling for those transitioning or not, including gender variant children, adolescents and parents. I'm a member of the CA Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). Confidential sessions are available either in person or video teleconferencing for CA residents.

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.
