Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Many of my clients are people who despite their successes, still find themselves saddled with a fierce inner critic. They may struggle with feelings of anxiety, or low self esteem. Sometimes people begin therapy with me because they feel disconnected from their passion and purpose in life or they wonder what holds them back from having more satisfying relationships. With help you can learn how to feel calmer and tame the critic. By paying skillful attention to your feelings we will uncover the blocks that keep you from being fully engaged, allowing you to reclaim your zest for life. I am a qualified EMDR practitioner. I draw on attachment theory, Jungian theory, mindfulness techniques, expressive arts and sandplay. Together we will determine the best approaches for you or your child. I believe that building an authentic relationship with my clients is an important part of all effective therapies. I specialize in treating childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. Often teens who initially appear resistant to therapy feel relief when they discover they have a safe place to sort out their thoughts and feelings. In my work with younger children I use play therapy, art, and sand play.

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.
