Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Choosing a therapist is a difficult task. It's important to be really comfortable with your counselor so that you can open up and freely share what's going on in your life. While the therapists' education, experience, and theoretical orientation are important, above all your ability to connect with and work with this person will make all the difference in your counseling experience. I will be happy to speak with you on the phone so that you can make a decision as to whether I am a good fit for you. If I'm not the right person, I'll be happy to provide you with other referrals in the area who might better meet your needs.

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.
