Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Our work together will be identifying suffering that exists in your life, how thought and experience influence suffering, and how change should occur so life can be experienced in a different way. This involves a heightened understanding of how your experience of the past impacts your present. We will also examine your expectations of the future and make realistic and timely plans that breathe vision into your life. But most importantly, we will learn to live in the present moment, for it is here where life unfolds. In the present moment, we can witness the effects of past choices and make new choices that will foster hope. The ability to choose is what we call freedom. As a California licensed therapist with a Masters degree in Pastoral Care & Counseling, I strive to integrate spiritual teaching with counseling and psychotherapy. This contributes to an awareness of the close relationship that exists between happiness and a healthy spiritual life. I have worked since 2007 as a mental health clinician in various recovery settings helping adults, adolescents, and their families overcome the grip of addiction. I have worked with underprivileged adolescents with a history of substance abuse to restore their lives. I have served as a hospital chaplain, a pastoral counselor at a local church, and a bereavement counselor for a North County hospice. Using mindfulness techniques, I teach clients how thoughts can lead to mental health problems. By developing an awareness of how one thinks, the client learns to take attention away from thought. The client is encouraged to overcome emotions with an internal shift of attention from thought to presence. In presence, the client finds peace.

About My Practice

Office Hours
Tue-Fri, 10-6. Evening and weekend appts as needed.
Do you feel stuck in life? Does life seem like all your current choices fail to lead to any sense of fulfillment? Are you unsure of what to do next? If this is where you feel you are right now, then you’ve come to the right place. In our work together, my goal as your therapist is to help you reduce suffering. Ideally, I would like you to be able to attain fulfillment, peace, and life in all its fullness. We call this true salvation. It is to be who You are, to feel within you the good that has no opposite, the joy of Being that comes from within and depends on nothing outside itself. True salvation is freedom from compulsive thinking, from negativity, and from threats of past and future as they arise in thought in this present moment.
