Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Through a relational, collaborative, and strength based approach, I assist women and teen girls in finding their balance and learning ways to communicate their voice in connection with others, and find their inner strengths using a mindfulness and embodied approach. I also help families and couples develop effective skills for communicating with one another.

About My Practice

Office Hours
Monday through Friday 11:00 a.m to 7:00 p.m.
My clinical areas of passion include; empowering women from diverse backgrounds in the many changes college, graduate school, career, relationships, family, and life bring. Including; developing a healthy relationship with your body, the skills needed to emotionally prepare for college and young adulthood, establishing and maintaining a healthy dating relationship. I also assist teen girls in making healthy choices around peer and dating relationships, helping high achievers find a balance with mind, body, and spirit, and establish healthy connections and communication between mothers and daughters. I also love helping new couples, newly engaged, or recently married in transforming their power struggles into a place of connection and empathy. In addition to my clinical practice, I provide presentations and workshops to adolescents, young women, colleges, and organizations that help women establish and develop confident and healthy relationships as they navigate their social, emotional, and academic worlds.

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.
