Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
One of the best things about doing therapy (as well as clinical supervision) is to be a part of a person's growth and development. I work from a strength based model, building on your "best" self while also identifying barriers to change and working through them. I find that people learn differently, and adjust my approach based on what works best for you.

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.
