Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a compassionate Solution Focused Therapist, who specializes in helping children, teens, individuals, and families cope with the aftermath of trauma. Whether there has been abuse, an assault, bullying, or the experience of witnessing a troubling event, I can help your child, you, or your family work through the transition and develop new coping strategies that can be successfully employed at home, school, or at the work setting. I also have experience working with individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, psychosis, suicidality, and other chronic challenges. I am trained as a Brief, Expressive Arts and as a Play Therapist. I have worked in multiple private and public school settings, group homes, a domestic violence shelter, a county alcohol and drug program, in acute and sub-acute psychiatric facilities, numerous children's clinics, and in Private Practice.

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.
