Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that at the core of many issues which prevent one from achieving fulfillment lies an early conflict regarding “attachment” to the primary caregivers. I can, therefore, be considered psychodynamic in my approach to “talk therapy.” However, I do not believe that one-size-fits all and therefore am electric in my approach, using a variety of interventions from other therapeutic orientations to suit each individual client’s unique needs.

I also believe therapy is collaborative process between therapist and client through which a client is able to gain a profound understanding of his/her behaviors in order to improve relationships, the quality of one’s life and satisfaction within oneself.

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.
