Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Often it seems like teenagers and parents speak different languages. It can be painful and frustrating to see your teenager shutting down, struggling with friends or relationships, or making risky choices.

Communication often becomes strained as parents’ efforts at expressing love and concern can easily be misinterpreted. Parents often say they feel pushed away or cut off from their teenager, and teenagers can feel rejected, controlled,or misunderstood.

For nine years, I have been working with teens and their families, first as a teacher and then as a therapist. My approach involves building a strong bond of understanding with my teen clients in which they feel respected and understood, and helping them communicate clearly and openly with their family. I help parents develop effective tools for providing a loving, respectful, and structured environment in which rules are followed, and every family member can enjoy a peaceful household.

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.
