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
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.
