Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my practice I help individuals and couples navigate through the labyrinth of human relationships and life's transitions, be it marriage concerns, parenting, work/life balance, or stress management. The world is a very complex arena and many of us need a neutral figure to guide us through the hurdles. It is important to me that the therapeutic process proves to be useful rather than simply supportive and comforting. In that way it is critical to me that every sessions provides my clients with concrete tools and solutions they can then apply immediately.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Santa Barbara, CA 93108

Because each person is unique, there can be no set formula for helping people find solutions and pursue their goals. I focus on the particular circumstances presented, and help construct personalized goals by carefully and non-judgmentally attending to what is being presented.
