Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello! Here’s how I work. I am primarily a cognitive therapist. I help you identify your beliefs, explore whether they are helpful, and assist you in developing more realistic views. This is especially useful for depression, anger and couples’ issues. I use EMDR to decrease anxiety and trauma symptoms. I also like to use sandtray therapy, a visual way of making the unconscious conscious. It helps you to develop insight as well as strategies to overcome your problems. With children and families, I use play, art and games, as well as the techniques described above. Hope to hear from you!

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
