Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
"Helping you to find yourself, the way you want to be."  My goal as your psychotherapist is to help you feel more at home in your own life. Sometimes you may feel depressed or anxious when you imagine you can't relate to others in a way which is authentic.  You can see this in primary relationships of all kinds ... with the ones you love, your work mates, friends and family. The healing of wounds is fundamental to our work, and your subconscious can be a valuable ally in the process.  If you feel comfortable, we might explore this healing by way of doing dreamwork together.  A form of Gestalt sandtray work is also available.  The issues which concern you are important. It will help to explore them together.  Please visit my website or send me an e-mail.  I will be honored to be your partner on this journey toward health.

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.
