Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a licensed psychotherapist, my passion is helping people who want to look at their lives and discover new ways to face the inevitable challenges. My approach is warm, relational, and intelligent. It is informed by attachment, neuropsychology, and psychodynamic theories. While listening forms the cornerstone of my work, I do more than just listen: I am engaged and interactive, offering ideas and support in a safe and collaborative environment.

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.
