My Approach to Helping
As a psychologist, my philosophy incorporates the idea that it is within a nurturing relationship that individuals heal and grow. The quality of the therapist-client relationship is the major vehicle for change. My approach to counseling patients is integrative. I incorporate contemporary psychotherapy models such as family systems, attachment theory, psychodynamic interpersonal, and cognitive models with a foundation in Christian faith and worldview.
Some of my areas of specialization include treatment of mood disorders, relational problems, women's psychotherapy, adolescent therapy, play therapy, Christian counseling, and psychological support for people facing major illness.
