Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My name is Sylvia Flanagan and I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in Mission Valley offering individual and couples counseling. I strive to create a caring and safe, yet challenging environment. All of us at some point encounter times of uncertainty, confusion or crisis. You may find yourself responding to people or situations in a repetitive and unproductive manner leaving you frustrated and weakened, unable to effectively work with life’s struggles and develop optimal relationships. I invite positive change and new direction while we explore ways to break patterns that rob you of your potential. Whether you want to make better sense of your situation, or move life along an entirely new course, you will be encouraged to use your strengths, talents and potentials to foster insight and change. No person is broken, nor needs to be fixed, but only rediscovered.

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.
