Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy being a psychotherapist, and take pride in doing good work. Being in the therapy/mental health profession for the past twenty years has given me a broad range of clinical experience that I bring to my practice. Besides helping with recent and longstanding concerns or difficulties, therapy can also play an important role in furthering one’s personal growth. I maintain a diverse, bi-lingual practice. I work with people seeking assistance with a wide range of concerns/hopes related to depression, anxiety, relationships, self-esteem/self-worth/self-confidence, life transitions, parenting, life direction/purpose, trauma, grief, etc. My clients continually demonstrate the capacity that all of us have for healing, feeling better, having fulfilling relationships, living joyfully, and growing. Therapy is most effective when there is a "good fit" between the client and therapist. I am thoughtful, interactive, empathic, sincere, and insightful. People find me very easy to relate to. My work is informed by a variety of approaches that I utilize to address each person's unique situation.

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.
