Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that we organize around the unfinished business in our lives--the tasks that, when completed, signal who we are--who we're born to be--doing what lights our eyes. Until we're on track to accomplishing this, we don't feel right, somehow. Anger, frustration, worry and despair often get the best of us. They don't have to. People can bend, fold and mutilate us . . . and people can return us to wholeness. Living authentically--being you--is everything! All else springs from this, including vibrant, even remarkable relationships. But being alive with authenticity can seem risky. "If I say what I really think, people will leave!" But if we don't live in a way that suits us, something inside leaves. We die without dying. Until we learn what lights our eyes and find ways to achieve it. My San Diego office is convenient to Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Cardiff, Encinitas and Carlsbad.

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.
