Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We all face problems in life which can at times seem overwhelming. We may not be able to clearly see solutions to those problems because of our own stress level, emotional pain, and confusion over what is best. In therapy, I can help you by giving you a compassionate, safe, non-judgemental place to express your deepest thoughts and feelings, explore options to resolve the problems you are facing, and support and encourage you as you face them. In therapy, you will gain insight, wisdom, and practical coping skills to deal with your personal issues with more confidence.

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.
