Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am committed to helping individuals and their families cope with substance abuse and addiction, anxiety, bulimia, depression and bipolar disorders as well as difficult life transitions such as divorce and grief. I have a special interest in object relations theory which connects an individual’s current difficulties with events experienced in early childhood. My goal is to help people tap into their inherent resilience and guide them to new sources of inner strength. I have a Master of Science degree in Counseling from California State University Fullerton and have received training in cognitive-behavioral therapy. I have worked in diverse counseling settings and have experienced working with children, individuals, and couples.

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.
