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
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.
