Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We all have the ability to heal ourselves. This is my deep belief and the foundation of my psychotherapy practice. Working together with my clients in the here and now, I provide a safe place for you to gain insight, understanding, and concrete tools to attain your goals. I use methods suited to the individual needs of each client so that a holistic experience of cognitive understanding, emotional expression, and somatic (body) awareness is possible. My training includes Energy Psychology (EFT), Self Psychology, Depth Oriented Brief Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Play Therapy, Humanistic, Relational, and Existential theories. I am a graduate of John F. Kennedy University with a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. My clients include individuals, couples, families, children, trauma survivors and people with cross cultural and immigrant issues. I am one of three founding members of Kensho Center in Berkeley. Kensho is a Japanese term meaning the experience of seeing into one's true nature and realizing what is essential to life.
