Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My philosophy of psychotherapy reflects my belief that people ultimately have within themselves the answers to their dilemmas, struggles, and life questions. I see my job as a facilitator to enable them to find those solutions. I take each person, couple or family as unique and therefore, my interventions are as unique and varied as the person/people in front of me. I find psychotherapy to be an exciting path of exploration and discovery for the client. I enjoy witnessing the changes people make when they are willing to invest the needed time, energy and money into the process. I am also a dancer and dance therapist. I offer "Everybody Can Dance" workshops. https://www.facebook.com/joinmedancing

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.
