Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Psychotherapy is about freedom: freedom from suffering, freedom to improve what is working poorly in one’s life and freedom to develop as an authentic human being. It’s also about exploration within a relationship where safety and trust are established; feelings are honored; pain is healed. My commitment is to listen carefully, provide support, understand your concerns, help you to gain insight and guide you to identify available options while respecting your right to make your own choices.

My style: engaged and interactive. Commitment: authentic. Capacity for empathy: substantial. Although comfortable with a range of clinical issues, theoretical orientations and technical options; methodology is always matched to clients needs.

A doctorate in Psychology, Master’s degrees in both Systems Management (Engineering, Business management, Psychology) and Education (Guidance and Counseling), coupled with decades of clinical practice, provide a solid base for our work together.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
