Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work from a strength-based perspective, which uses the client’s history as a guide, but focuses on finding practical ways to bring healing and hope to their present challenges. Rather than adopting a passive "reflective-listener" role, I actively collaborate with my clients throughout our work together. My typical treatment process begins with a multi-dimensional assessment. The assessment includes extensive history gathering and asking the client to complete various questionnaires that provide me information vital to the development of an accurate diagnostic perspective of the presenting symptoms and issues. I then work with the client to develop clear goals for our work together, identifying what specific changes will signal that desired progress is being made. I approach treatment from the perspective that genetics, temperament, and family dynamics influence a person's response to difficult experiences. In treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder, I find that individuals have significant characteristics of resiliency and strength that have been overshadowed in attempts to cope with life stressors. My treatment process involves identifying and disrupting distorted response patterns in order to restore appropriate self-worth, realistic optimism, and relational health.

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.
