Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My passion is in teaching others that the doorway to lasting well-being and inner peace is through the development of self-empathy and learning the impact of our thoughts on ourselves, others, and our world. I believe that it is only by becoming fully responsible for our own happiness that we become the change we want in the world. I have a Master's Degree in Educational Counseling and Psychology from the University of the Pacific. I have developed and facilitated life skills groups using cognitive behavioral techniques with mindful awareness in clinical settings since 1992. The emphasis of my private practice is the treatment of stress, anxiety, and depression related to life transitions in the context of relationships. My professional orientation is collective and primarily based on the theories of: * Dr. David Burns related to the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors * Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, related to mindfulness meditation, self-connection, health, and healing * Drs. Abraham Maslow and Marshall Rosenberg related to basic and universal human needs and compassionate communication as a tool for successful communication * Dr. Roberto Assagioli related to levels of awareness and the development of intuitive wisdom I offer on-going support groups in a 12-week format designed to address lives that have become unbalanced and unfulfilling. Often the stress of our hectic lives, as well as effects of past trauma can rob us of the rich experience of living life fully. Unresolved feelings often associated with painful experience-including traumatic events, significant losses or toxic relationships can contribute to diminished self-confidence, anxiety, depression, confusion, isolation, unrealistic fears, or just the need to control others. The format of the groups are designed to gently guide towards a greater self-awareness and self-acceptance through the use of mind-body techniques and compassionate non-judgemental dialogue. Groups are not a replacement for individual therapy; therefore, not designed to address more serious individual problems. Interested individuals may feel free to contact me for dates, times, and additional information.
