Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I provide support for adults, teens and families who wish to live happier and healthier lives. Increasing awareness and learning effective ways to cope with and communicate feelings can lead to positive change and more meaningful relationships. I have a small private practice as well as work as a counselor/educator at UCSB in the Alcohol & Drug Program. Themes of transition, stress, independence, connection, self-esteem, identity, and substance use are some of the topics to explore. I also have experience working with children and families with developmental disabilities and in group homes.

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.
