Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My journey in the healing arts is a wonderful one and involves working with clients of all ages and stages of life. I have been enjoying time with clients for 13 years now and have worked within the private practice, adolescent residential intensive inpatient, school and non-profit settings. I have studied and collaborated with a diverse community of therapists and have an integrated therapy approach with a specific focus on intermodal therapies (i.e. art, group activities, etc.), life transitions, and family/group work. Through my own life experiences, and by witnessing the stories of others, I am able to offer a supportive environment. I especially enjoy being with individuals during times of transition: into motherhood, from junior high to high school, high school to college, moving to a new community, relationship break-ups, foster and adoptive homes, identity exploration, times of grief, etc. Clients have described me as compassionately working with them in a straightforward and calm manner to support them in looking at ‘problems’ as an opportunity for growth and movement. I meet clients where they are emotionally and implement the goals and therapy techniques that are the best fit for them. It is important to feel comfortable in your therapy session. I have been told I am ‘down to earth’, which I feel is a reflection of me listening to you and following your lead on the healing path. Therapy is about guidance that supports you in finding your own answers, strengths, inner wisdom, joy, and so much more in your life. I am happily married and we have a newborn. I enjoy the outdoors, music, world travel, writing, being a pen pal, family, and friends.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
