Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Couples counseling is my specialty. I also work frequently with individual adult clients. I employ an eclectic approach in a practice that addresses a broad range of issues---depression, anxiety, relationship and sexual problems, grieving and loss. One area of special focus in my practice is wellness and work/life balance. Another area of specialty is chronic illness---dealing with the challenges of living with physical, mental or emotional conditions that affect all spheres of daily life. I work collaboratively with clients to build awareness of self-defeating patterns and create new approaches to relationships, life transitions and recurrent problems. Clients begin to discover new options as they develop the flexibility, capacity and broadened perspectives that help reduce distress and dissatisfaction while overcoming obstacles.

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.
