Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe the process of change comes from exploring, discovering and addressing what we learned about relationships in our family of origin. These patterns learned in our families are repeated throughout our lives: partners, spouses, children, extended family, employment and our community. I work in a collaborative, active and personal way to help you discover and practice the wisdom within to develop truly rich, deeply rewarding and renewed connections with people in your life.

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.
