Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I utilize a holistic approach integrating the mind (how we think and feel), body (how we take care of our physical selves from the inside- out) and spirit (who we are in this world). By using this approach I help individuals challenge aspects that aren’t working in their lives and help them focus on identifying what IS working. This is done by taking an active role in treatment instead of a passive one. You are the expert of your life and together we can collaborate on helping to create new meaning to it. I utilize several therapeutic styles that focus on an individual, a couple or family's strengths. I am a therapist who continuously thinks “outside of the box.” At times I may utilize art, music, spirituality and movement during therapy; because I feel that we all express ourselves using many of our senses and through different means aside from talking. I personalize each session to address any symptoms that may present themselves and introduce healthy coping skills accordingly. I believe that prevention work through life's changes is crucial. Pre-marriage counseling, entering new relationships, becoming parents and other role transitions can be challenging for some, but counseling can help increase healthy communication and build sound, long-lasting relationships. I have been trained in several approaches and integrate psycho-education when necessary. Don’t wait, take the first step today. Call for a FREE 15 minute consultation.

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.
