Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Feeling stuck, overwhelmed, life not giving you what you want, and unsure about what to do to feel better?
Life is too short to live it unhappy!
It takes courage to ask for help. My goal is to provide a safe, supportive, and caring environment. I believe that every person has within them the inner strength, ability, and the answers to what they are looking for. I see my roles as a therapist to help individuals discover their unique inner strength and abilities. I identify with being Swiss-American. I have a broad range of work experience with special interests in working with addiction, adults, and children, cross-cultural issues, grief and loss. Services include individual psychotherapy, process group, family support group, couple and family psychotherapy.

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.
