My Approach to Helping

My goal is to help you "get your life back" from mental illness, depression, anxiety, self-improvement, marriage conflict, or difficult children. While I can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.
I can use a number of different approaches that would help you including emotion-focused therapy, hypnosis, NLP, cognitive processing therapy, EMDR, Gestalt, play therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, Narrative, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Within the practice, I work with a variety of populations including marriage and family, play therapy (children and adolescents), individuals, and mood disorders.

More Info About My Practice

I work along side two other colleagues. Sherry McNary, LPC Associate and Dr. Peter Ajayi
