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
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.
