Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I use a broad base of theoretical knowledge and life experiences to establish rapport with my clients and to help them identify where they hope to grow. It’s important that a relationship is formed based on mutual respect and open dialogue. I’ve found that these help people feel comfortable sharing their deepest thoughts, feelings and struggles. I’ve found that making this emotional commitment helps people seek different and frequently more effective ways of coping with life’s challenges.

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.
