Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work in a non-directive, empathic manner. We address what is of utmost concern to you in each session. I use many levels of attunement and listening to try to understand you as deeply as I can. Together, we collaborate on making meaning of your behavior and inner experience. Understanding what feels most "true" for you leads to change.

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.
