My Approach to Helping

How do you want to feel when you leave a counselor's office? I pay attention to that. I want people I work with to feel heard, understood, and respected while we are working on what is important to them. I tend to be direct, use humor if it helps, and want to know if desired outcomes are being met in between sessions. The problems I work with are complicated, so I take it step by step and may use a rating system to measure progress. Results are always better if there is a good connection between myself and a client.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I teach communication, relationship-building skills, and conflict resolution to bolster marriage and family relationships, and to prepare couples through premarital counseling. Mindfulness, cognitive, and behavioral restructuring are proven by research to reduce depression, anger, anxiety, trauma, grief and ADHD. Addictions are addressed through motivational interviewing and treating underlying issues. I specialize in working with couples and families in addition to individuals. Divorce mediation, co-parenting counseling, reunification counseling, and supervised visitation are also available. If interested, services are offered for Christian counseling, and in Spanish or American Sign Language.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Understanding how emotions are affected by thought and behavioral patterns, aided by the support of a knowledgeable therapist, increases one's ability to have emotions that may be otherwise alarming or disturbing. Desired changes are obtained by adjusting thoughts and behaviors based on feedback.
