Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with a diverse clientele in terms of age, culture, orientation, and issues. I think that people generally have the answers to their problems within themselves and I offer a strength-based approach and a safe place to assist my clients in finding these solutions.

I provide a genuine, accepting, non-judgmental, supportive environment to assist my clients in understanding the source of their suffering and in developing skills of personal success and satisfaction.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship—the connection/rapport between client and therapist¬¬—is the foundation of successful psychotherapy and personal growth. I use an idiosyncratic style; that is, I see each individual client as unique and use that uniqueness to inform the course of therapy.

Central to my practice is mindfulness, which combined with behavioral and humanistic-existential models, contributes to a client’s ability to gain clarity regarding problems, let go of old behaviors, and take a new direction.

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.
