Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you unhappy with what you see in the mirror? Does the number on the scale determine your mood or how your day will be? Are you afraid of being fat or worried about your weight? Do you feel fat even though others say you’re too thin? Do you think you will be happy if you are thin? Do you count calories, exercise to burn calories, or purge after you eat? Do you eat when you’re upset or does food give you comfort? Do you feel controlled by food?

If you are feeling controlled by thoughts, fears, and worries about food, weight, and appearance, you might feel frustrated, depressed, anxious, confused, and exhausted. I provide special counseling services to help you understand why you are thinking and feeling this way so that you can take control of your life instead of being controlled by food and weight issues.

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.
