Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, utilizing empathy, mindfulness, somatics and in the moment experience to maximize therapeutic gains. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, trauma, relationship concerns, and gender exploration, as well as in working with the following communities: same-sex (gay, bi or queer), transgender and gender non-conforming, polyamory, freak, kink, etc., although my actual practice is very diverse and I see a broad spectrum of clients. I utilize complexity theories and an integrated, relational stance to incorporate mind, body and spiritual experiences in my work, something that I believe speeds up healing more quickly than words alone.

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.
