Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with kids with learning and behavioral challenges and their families. I help them overcome their challenges resulting in the kids learning more easily and everyone living a more peaceful and happier life. My work is holistic, respectful and effective. I work in collaboration with parents, schools and other therapists to give the child the best opportunity of feeling successful and connected. I love working with children and teens and their families. It is inspiring to see people learn to have the energy, freedom and ability to express their thoughts and loving with one another in effective ways. Family Coaching is an important aspect of my work. Helping parents with kids who learn and function differently to navigate the unique sets of issues they face, helps families be more peaceful and loving. Issues of discipline, co-parenting (especially when there are differing points of view), and how to attend appropriately and lovingly to all the children in the family are among the issues we explore. Using a heartfelt approach to my life and work I seek to be as creative as I can to meet the needs of my clients. Both HANDLE programs and Marriage, Family Therapy services are provided to empower people across the lifespan to efficiently overcome life’s challenges in a gentle, safe, caring environment.

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.
