My Approach to Helping
You can’t change what’s happened in the past, but you can change your future. I am a Christian therapist who specializes in therapy with adults and parents of children under 12. I have practiced for more than 25 years in a variety of settings and am experienced in trauma-focused therapy. My goal is to work together with you to better understand and resolve the issues causing you distress. We will use a combination of psychodynamic and cognitive-based therapy interventions to look at negative perceptions and behavior patterns that are impeding positive relationships and a more fulfilling life.
Parents, if you are struggling with a child’s difficult or disruptive behavior, you are likely feeling very frustrated and helpless. Research has shown that teaching parents specific behavioral interventions is the most effective way to change a child’s behavior, as you can use them as behaviors are occurring. I love giving parents the tools they need to turn things around and help them enjoy their children again. Interventions are tailored to your specific household.
If you want to decrease the power past trauma is having in your life or if you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
