It takes courage and strength to ask for help when life is painful and does not feel as fulfilling as you wish it were. Sometimes it is even more challenging when we realize that we need to seek help for our children or our family. Whatever your situation, I thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey of growth and well- being. I hope this website will provide helpful information and serve as an introduction if we have not yet met.
My goal as a therapist is to walk along side you offering support and understanding. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to form a better understanding of the challenges you have faced and begin to remove any roadblocks that have prevented you from uncovering your true potential and living a joyous life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we can alter long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you, or your family, back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Building a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients is the foundation of my success. Clients find that I am personable, down to earth, sometimes humorous, and always genuine. This is evident in the fact that very few clients discontinue their therapy services with me prematurely, as well as by the high rate of referrals that are made by current or former clients.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a difficult situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I am here for you. I work with individuals of ALL ages, couples, and families. My office is conveniently located in downtown Bakersfield. I can also provide services via the internet or telephone.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step! Begin by calling or sending me an email. I look forward to hearing from you. :)
