Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families presenting with diverse challenges. As a psychotherapist, I have provided community based services in settings such as schools, agencies/clinics, residential facilities, and homes. My educational background and clinical experience have equipped me to work specifically well with clients and families dealing with mood disorders, trauma/abuse, health challenges, stress management, and grief/loss. I have also provided parenting coaching to promote parent-child bonding. My approach is based primarily on attachment theory, cognitive behavior therapy and systems theory, and I also integrate mindfulness into my therapeutic work. With children, I utilize predominantly art and play therapies. Therapy can be for transient or chronic issues and nothing is too small to discuss. I try my best to create a safe environment where clients can express any concerns or beliefs without judgment. I help individuals access and explore their inner selves in effort to develop a more authentic and healthy sense of self. I help clients articulate their feelings, needs, and goals, as well as tap into their inner resources to cope with life’s challenges and accomplish the change they hope for. I assist individuals, couples, and families towards nurturing and strengthening their relationships. Therapy is a collaborative process and requires both client and therapist to work together. Although at times I may make certain recommendations or utilize a directive approach, I see my role as helping the client explore his or her values so that individual can make his or her own decisions based on those values. I can assist clients with problem solving current barriers that interfere with their abilities to live a more full life. Benefits to utilizing therapy include gaining personal insight, deepening one’s relationships, and learning skills to improve emotional regulation, communication and engagement in more adaptive behaviors.

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.
