My Approach to Helping
I believe that it is my job to create an emotionally safe and open environment so you are free to be yourself. In this environment I hope to help you not only gain insight about your life, but help you develop and implement skills and tools you can practice. It is this insight + practice that leads to transformation.
I love working with a variety of issues and most often specialize in relational issues (i.e. marriage, dating, family, , etc.), anxiety and depression (identifying root causes, managing symptoms, and reframing as opportunity for growth), issues around faith, grief, and personal development and wellness.
One of the things that makes my practice unique is that I'm not just a therapist, but I speak at conferences, teach workshops, lead marriage intensives, and record a weekly podcast. I'm also author of The Anxious Christian & What it Means to be a Man.
