My Approach to Helping
Tired of figuring it out on your own? Counseling could be an important next step in your life-a new journey into greater health and wholeness. I see my role as an expert guide to bring understanding into your emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships. Because life is often played out in the context of relationships, these emotions, thoughts, and behaviors not only impact your view of self, but also the world around you. When we talk about the past, it will be for the purpose of healing difficult memories or gaining a greater understanding of how your past affects your present. I have an eclectic approach to therapy drawing from over 12 years of experience working with individuals and couples.
I come from a Christian perspective and am an expert at using your Christian beliefs as part of the process. Yet, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey, I highly individualize my approach. Specialty areas include but are not limited to: anxietystress management, depression, griefloss, couplesfamily conflict, premarital, divorce recovery, transitions, singleness, and spiritual issues.
If you are interested in growing as an individual andor becoming closer as a couple, I'd love to help. My desire is that through therapy you may not only gain greater understanding of your own emotions, thoughts, and behaviors and improve your relationships; but that you also obtain greater hope, stronger faith, and develop a larger capacity for love.
