Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My intention is to help clients have healthy, fulfilling relationships with themselves and the people in their lives. I work to gain your trust and be your ally as you take on the challenges life places before you, including difficult transitions due to age. Paramount to this therapeutic collaboration is empathy for your feelings and compassion for your unique life experiences. Our work together will be filled with respect, gentleness and consideration as you search for the meaningful, integrated life you deserve. It's your process, whether you're struggling to find your way back to the life you enjoy, or discovering a life you want to live, and the best quality of life you can experience.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
