Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As both a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I am trained to deal with a wide range of issues that affect one's relationship with self and others, but I have special training in assisting individuals, couples and families to adjust to change and to reclaim their lives following an unexpected event whether the event is recent or occurred many years ago. Reclaiming your life involves imagining and taking action on what comes next so I look to you to define how life would look at its most optimum and focus on goals that will bring that vision into being. My approach to therapy is based on your preferences for therapy, cultural preferences and your preferred learning style. Additionally, I am certified in several evidence based approaches to trauma including EMDR and CPT. I am also certified in an evidence based approach for couples known as Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy. I believe that people possess an amazing capacity for resilience, creativity, courage and caring and that sometimes we become disconnected from these qualities and the truth about who we are. I believe that therapy can help restore these connections and tap the resources that individuals and families already possess. What is the story you now want to tell about who you are and where you are going?

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
