Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that YOU the potential to change your life through dedicated hard work and reflection. I view my role as both your collaborator and guide, bearing witness to your story and helping you grow in understanding and in insight so that new, more empowering stories can be written. I specialize in (but am not limited to helping with...) trauma care, crisis survivors, grief and loss, domestic violence & abuse victims, divorce recovery, family health. ?This can happen in a variety of ways, not in the least of which involves exploring feelings and deeply held behavior and thinking patterns. Prepare yourself for a life-changing experience! My approach to therapy is a holistic one, which is determined by each client's specific need. I am most influenced by Psychodynamic practices, exploring your experiences and past relationships in order to gain a deeper understanding of how such experiences may be influencing your current life and relationships. I also have extensive training and experience in various therapeutic approaches. I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, a more short-term, brief and structured therapy approach that focuses on problem solving, skill building and is goal directed. ?Through this rewarding process, I am a strong motivator of helping achieve goals. My faith as a Christian woman guides my practice. I welcome spirituality into the therapy room based on YOUR preference, whenever appropriate. If it is in your particular interest, I skillfully integrate one's spiritual journey into the therapeutic process. I have helped people from all parts of the world, from different cultures with diverse ideas about religion, sexuality, gender identity, marriage, family and Love. I have deep, enriched roots with my alma mater, UC Riverside and was deeply inspired by the unique diversity around my learning environment there. I profoundly value a culturally-sensitive approach? to counseling. I have both considerable clinical and professional experience with diverse populations because of my own personal experiences, my cultural background, and professional interests.
