Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The main reason I became a therapist was to work with the hearing-impaired. My sister is deaf and I grew up immersed in deaf culture. I am proficient in sign language and recognize the need for comparable services for this special population. My philosophical framework is eclectic. I am a humanistic therapist who utilizes many modalities including art therapy, role-play, and cognitive-behavioral. Spirituality permeates my approaches to meet the needs of the individual. I also have specialized training in drug and alcohol counseling. Before any healing can occur, addictive patterns need to be released through an honest, open dialogue in conjunction with a program such as AA or NA. Any problem has a solution if the individual is willing to be introspective and face the issue with an open mind and heart. "Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field, I'll meet you there."

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.
