My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping is based on a proper understanding of brain functioning and brain health. Most problems that bring people into therapy, such as problems managing emotions; problems with thinking, memory, or attention; behavioral problems; or a history of trauma in the form of some type of abuse, concussion, or head injury, are caused by inadequate fueling to the brain. This brain fueling problem can be addressed with nutritional changes and therapy that teaches you to more effectively manage your emotions and behavior. The result is you get your life back now and maintain your brain health in the future.
I actively integrate research and clinical practice in a warm, supportive atmosphere, which respects you and your ability to recover. When therapy is completed I objectively measure your results and share those results with you. This data guides my practice and assures you that you are receiving the most effective treatment available.
I believe that brain dysfunction is the primary cause of the problems people experience that bring them to therapy. It is not some character defect, personal weakness, or lack of motivation.
I provide treatment to achieve brain health and optimum functioning for all my clients, but it is provided from a Christian perspective for people of faith.
