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
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.
