Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my work with children for over 14 years, I find that children are very resilient. They may not be able to fully verbalize what their troubles are, but they are always able to communicate their concerns and their needs through creative means. This is why I became a play therapist, so that I could fully communicate with children, meeting them where they are at, and healing them through creative expression. When asked most children will tell you they don't know "why" they do what they do, or respond the way they do. Play therapy allows me, as the therapist, to explore their world and their anxieties in a non-threatening way. Likewise, it also allows for me to help them to heal in a similar manner. I have been trained in play therapy at UCSD and have a certificate in play therapy. I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 13 years. I enjoy working with kids and relate well to them. Contact me today to make an appointment, to see if we can get some help for your child.

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.
