Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe we all have the capacity to change. We often feel judged by the world around us and the people in our lives. My philosophy is that in a safe nonjudgmental environment we can explore and understand ourselves and our relationships. This awareness is the first step towards change. My goal is to provide that safe space for clients. They are the experts on themselves so collaboratively I strive to help clients deal with issues such as low self esteem, depression, anxiety, communication skills and life’s most challenging issues. I feel the therapist client relationship needs to be first and foremost one of safety and trust.

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.
