Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Having more fulfilling relationships is the focus of counseling. I work with individuals and couples to help explore issues that get in their way. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of learning better communication skills. Sometimes there are past hurts that are creating the obstacles. Together we can develop a plan to help you reach your goals.

I have a special interest in women’s issues, especially women who have experienced early mother loss. I am also a professor of Marriage and Family Therapy at Cal State Dominguez Hills. I teach Human Communication and Legal and Ethical Issues of Counseling to therapists, social workers, and psychology graduate students.

I have just added Saturdays to my practice to accommodate those of you who are busy during the week. If you want to improve your relationship with both yourself and others, let’s begin a dialogue and see if it’s a good fit.
