Personal Statement

Personal Statement:

Sitting on the 'horns of a dilemma'?

What if you could meet with someone who is adept at eliciting submerged bits of information that will get you off those 'horns', sorting what keeps you immobilized and seeing outer factors you’re dealing with in ways that expand the possibilities?

I interact fluidly with what you present, honing in on your highest aspirations and deepest truths. Doing so affords a sense of relief and energy that brings renewed hope, “the soul’s basal resource… a tough mettle that looks at all available data, then chooses a strong route to the most positive outcome possible.”

Situations you may face:
• Separation
• Divorce
• Marriage
• Education
• Children
• Living/Job Situations
• Grief
• Losses

My training in EMDR and somatic work helps when subconscious ‘recruitment tactics’ interfere. These are approached with loving regard, because at one time, they were meant to protect 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.
