Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am most interested in working with motivated adults or adolescents who are looking for relief from psychic pain, are trying to cope with trauma, or are dealing with substance issues. They might be struggling with the effects of aging and marital issues and their self-esteem is diminishing in the process. You do have strengths and we will find them together.

Working with clients who are grieving or have been traumatized – seeing their ability to prevail over the harshest pain – has enlightened me to their resilience. Many are trying to survive without children or spouses while those who have been traumatized feel like they have lost a part of themselves.

The loss of a child leads to incomprehensible grief. Trying to move forward with your life is an impossible hurdle. If you are left behind in shock, feeling hopeless and helpless, I can help. Call me.

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.
