My Approach to Helping

I provide Christian and Biblical-based counseling and work from a Person-Centered, Positive and Strength-based approach. I believe that relationships can be a primary method of healing and I focus on forming a trusting "team" approach with the clients that I work with. I find satisfaction in helping my clients to overcome past trauma, feelings of low self-worth, depressionanxiety or problems from their family of origin, such as Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN). I specialize in working with children and offer Parent Coaching using evidence-based approaches. I use child development and attachment to overcome extreme behaviors and to help parents to attune to the needs of their children. I believe that one of the best ways to help children to grow into healthy adults is to help their parents. In addition, I am a PrepareEnrich facilitator to assist both engaged and married couples to improve and thrive in their relationships.

More Info About My Practice

At this time I do not accept insurance and have made a choice to accept only private pay clients. This policy allows clients to maintain control over their health records, the duration and frequency of treatment. Insurance companies often require a diagnosis that suggests an illness to be treated instead of a problem that requires solutions. I support a "wellness" approach that seeks the help of a therapist for overcoming challenges or struggles in life.

I accept cash, checks, credit cards and Health Savings accounts, and have a sliding fee scale based on income for the convenience of my clients.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Like everyone, I've had my share of life's problems. Some have been the luck of the draw and others have been of my own making. Before becoming a therapist I worked as an Early Childhood Educator for 20+ years and loved working with children and families. I saw and experienced first hand how powerful counseling could be for myself and for the families I worked with. I became a therapist when health concerns made it clear that I needed to find a new way to work and following my dream has been rewarding beyond my expectations. I know what it means to overcome difficulties and find ways around barriers that made me want to quit. I have used my life experience to understand, help and support my clients in ways I couldn't have when I was a younger person.
