My Approach to Helping

I understand and approach people and relationships from a Christian world view. I do not push this on anyone and can be as explicit or implicit as the client needs. I am clinically trained as a Professional Counselor and am varied in the approaches I use to help people. My practice has been described as safe, caring, insightful, helpful collaborative and deep. I aim to help free people from their wounds and poor survival tactics so they can be the most authentic "me" they can be. I utilize a systems approach to understand people in the context of relationships and a trauma model to understand the effect of situations on people, their relationships and the way they interact with their world.

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

I am very skilled, passionate, and have had great success in helping couples. We have worked to address present conflict, infidelity, communication or intimacy concerns. There has been much work done to heal from past wounds, both in their marriage and prior to their relationship. All of the work allowed the couple to achieve a relationship that is better than they have had before or may never thought possible.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Therapy provides the environment to authentically address heart and relational issues and offers the insight, support, encouragement and specialized training to affect change in the person willing to do the work.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I am honored to be invited into someone's life to help them through a difficult time. I know the challenge of asking for help, and I, myself, have benefited greatly from counseling. I also believe I have a gift/calling to help transform lives. I greatly enjoy seeing people significantly freed from wounds and poor survival tactics and able to experience life and relationships more in line with what God intended relationships to be.

My Role as a Therapist

I provide a safe and caring environment. I also utilize my training and expertise to assist the client(s) to be freed from the issues that are keeping them from living life to the full. I aim to work myself out of a job with each client. Meaning, I want to provide the help necessary for a time and then bless the client to go on in their own strength and health.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

We are all broken people. The wise seek help and do not isolate and try and do it themselves. I have "been there, done that" and let my clients know I am not perfect, but have learned some things that are very helpful.
