Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Oftentimes when we are suffering to one extent or another with feelings or circumstances that seem unwieldy and out of our control we want to feel better and thus seek a therapist who is not only competent, but provides a secure and comfortable environment. It is in such an environment that we can feel free to discover and deal with feelings that come up and then find various solutions to deal with our problems and our feelings; a way to heal, and then achieve the peace and happiness we so deserve.

I wish you a good journey.

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.
