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
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
