Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My philosophical orientation is Intersubjectivity. It is an in-depth psychology that explores feelings, beliefs, and behaviors in the context of ones life – past-present-future- and in the context of the therapeutic relationship. I specialize in couples therapy. I believe that significant relationships have the power to heal. What upsets us about the other, also gives both partners the opportunity to become truly known-more intimate- and grow together. I help each couple to become more aware of their unique relationship “dance”, and how each participates. The goal is to be able to have conversations about difficult issues in a way that promotes closeness. I am very experienced, having been in practice over 30 years.

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.
