Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in private practice since 1991. Before becoming a Marriage Family Therapist, I taught speech and communications at UCLA, where I earned my Masters degree in that field. I enjoy bringing these skills into my therapeutic work. As a writer/poet, I very much like helping others develop their voices, whether developing self esteem and self confidence to free thoughts and feelings, or to write or re/tell the story of their lives so they can creatively move forward. I love working with all people who want to find meaning in their lives, feel better and move out of a static place. This includes couples, families, blended families, children and teens, those in transition or experiencing depression or grief and loss issues and those wanting to unblock their creativity. I have a special interest in helping families cope with the challenge of a family member who suffers mental illness.
