Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In a collaborative manner I work with a diverse client population to help them achieve greater personal satisfaction and to establish healthier relationships. My training as an MFT allows me to work with individuals, couples, children and familes. I work with clients that are seeking improved coping skills and reduction in emotional distress. In addition to my Master's degree I have an undergraduate degree in Child Development. I work with parenting and childhood development issues. I also guide couples towards individual exploration with the goal of helping them achieve a more honest self-awareness, greater intimacy and improved communication. I am trained to diagnosis and treat the symptoms of depression and anxiety, to address life transitions such as loss, grief, personal/professional adjustments and stress management. I have extensive experience working with children with-in school settings and foster-placement . Additional areas of focus are multi-cultural relationships, ethnicity, bi-racial and multi-racial parenting.
