Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Areas of specialty include adult chemical dependency, sexuality, trauma, depression, and anxiety. Strong emphasis on cognitive process, assertiveness training, and reality therapy. Theory revolves around Reichian, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Jungian approach. I consider systemic influence and the client's personal values as they apply uniquely to each individual. My background includes more than 11 years experience in crisis intervention and in-patient psychiatry, individual, and family work in a number of settings including public school counseling, community-based clinic, HIV-STD education and counseling, and 12-step and risk reduction models for chemical dependency. My doctoral dissertation investigated the numerous contributing variables to psychological adjustment post-sexual abuse in children and adolescents. I have a comfortable office conveniently located in Noe Valley.

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.
