My Approach to Helping
Using both research and professional experience, I work with clients in an open and direct manner. Therapy typically begins with finding solutions to problems first and dealing with issues of the past after there has been success moving forward. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is used to help people find ways of thinking through their issues. Marital therapy relies heavily on the research of the Gottman Institute.
More Info About My Practice
I have years of training and experience of integrating Christian truths into therapy. Many of my clients do not have spiritual beliefs, but for those who do, I can use these beliefs to promote healing and wellness.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Although I work with many mental health issues including anxiety and depression, I tend to have more skills and experience than colleagues in the areas of angry and defiant teenagers, marital problems and men's issues.
My Role as a Therapist
My role varies with each client's needs. I listen, give advice, challenge negative or faulty beliefs, give encouragement, telling a client when they are probably wrong and when they are probably right.
