Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We go through life feeling that there must be more: more to our relationships, our potentials, or just MORE! Why can’t we achieve success and fulfillment? Why can't we find that perfect partner? Or, why can’t we seem to use our creativity and talents? We struggle to understand what we are doing and why we repeat the same behaviors and relationships. Often depression, anxiety, trauma or a significant life transition, can interfere with work, family, friendships [and our sense of well being]. I often work with highly creative individuals and couples: writers, actors and artists, that may experience “Artist’s Block.” 100 words To address these questions we have to look at our own process of growth. Becoming aware of ourselves is central to allowing change to occur. I work creatively and sensitively. Together we'll examine, within a safe, therapeutic environment, what keeps you from deeper relationships and a more [authentic], satisfying life. 50 Specializing in Jungian and psychodynamic psychology, I may also draw on other various approaches, based on the nature of the symptom/situation. These may include: family systems and cognitive, as well as a creative and imaginal approach of dream analysis, sandplay and art therapy. Positive change and healing are possible. 50

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.
