Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I provide an environment of safety and acceptance, where new understanding and confidence can develop and flourish. Recognize that our feelings and previous experiences affect such issues as intimacy, the challenge of illness, life transitions, loss, and sense of purpose, my approach to psychotherapy integrates concepts of the mind and body. I work with individuals and couples to facilitate change toward increased contentment and vitality, and have particular expertise in helping clients cope with the experience of chronic or acute medical conditions.

Fear and pain can keep up from the fullness of life, while anger, resentment, loneliness, and jealousy can keep us from experiencing healthy relationships. I seek to create a space in which new meanings can emerge, and healing can take place.

My background in family medicine as a physician assistant/family nurse practitioner (PA/FNP since 1979), offers unique perspectives to my work. Because of my training and experience, I am particularly sensitive to the needs of clients who are dealing with issues of health and illness.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
