Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The therapeutic process can be one of the most powerful tools for personal growth and change that has become available to us in recent years. Although often what brings one into seeking therapy is crisis or pain, the sense of self-discovery in a safe environment can be a rewarding and even transformational endeavor after the crisis or cause of pain is resolved. I consider therapy a collaboration, an uncovering of the unconscious motivations that keep us from being who we truly are and achieving our desired goals.

Although I often work in long-term therapy from an intersubjective orientation, I also have been trained in brief solution-focused therapy. My background is in the visual and performing arts, and my interests include not only the creative processes, but women's mid-life transition and substance abuse recovery issues. Patricia Ross is the author of 'So You Want to be a Therapist' at www.amazon.com.

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.
