Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work primarily with with adults and couples. I have experience working with individuals recovering from substance abuse, complex PTSD, chronic stress, depression and anxiety. I also have experience working with couples and can offer couples therapy informed by Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT). As a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner(SEP)I can also offer a unique opportunity to combine somatic based healing modalities with talk therapy. Somatic Experiencing(SE) is a naturalistic approach to working with trauma and chronic patterns of stress. Within this therapuetic approach there is an assumption that our nervous system has an innate capacity to restore itself and that humans often overide this natural restoration process through varrious means. Every person has their own patterns, their own unique style of bracing or defending against threat which most often starts out as adaptive and crucial for survival. It is when these survival patterns become chronic and begin to negavively impact our lives that we become currious and seek therapy to learn more and hopefully experience some relief. SE aims to engage with and restore our nervous system's natural capacity for resilience, helping us get back to the rest and restoration we need in order to engage in our lives more fully.

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.
