Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Specialy areas for me include adoption, infertility, eating disorders, and elder care. One area of my thinking therapeutically is based in Family Systems. That means reviewing family of origin issues with individuals, couples and families. When looking at those kind of issues with people, the looking often begins to tell a story about how a person or persons have lived up until this time. Since I have experienced being a professional artist/weaver, before being a therapist, I like to talk about how a life can be like a tapestry. The picuture on a tapestry is made up of many, many threads and areas of color. Those threads are laid down next to each other to create each color area. Our eye blends the colors to perceive an image. Impressionist painters, more than a century ago, used the same kind of technique, tiny dots or whisps of paint, to create a picture. Sometimes a person does not have the tapestry picture of his/her life completed. It might be damaged or it might never have been finished at all. An incomplete tapestry picture, (unresolved conflicts within relationships), can cause uncomfortable feelings, such as guilt and anxiety. When pain from these often misunderstood feelings gets unmanageable, he/she may seek out a therapist. The therapist can coach a person to unravel and begin to reweave life threads into a clearer view of life. This is where I can come into the picture. I see myself as a coach/weaver of life threads. I can encourage patients to make their own repairs to their tapestry. A person begins to do this by noticing, owning and defining the areas of threads in their tapestry that need change. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that an individual is entitled to the opportunity to choose to work, to complete their own life tapestry. What life reward through therapy? Your own masterpiece.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
