***I am NOT currently accepting new therapy clients. I am accepting new coaching and consulting clients. See the Coaching page for more info on the differences and to see if you qualify for those services, or if those will meet your needs. ***
I have been treating individuals, couples, and families in private practice for over 17 years. I am honored to be chosen and trusted by clients to help them in an array of areas of difficulty in life. Most of my background, training and experience are focused on helping people come into wholeness in the area of relationships with other people, with themselves, with food/substances, or with God. Although I specialize in marriage and family relationships, eating disorders, and trauma recovery, I also treat other common therapeutic issues:
Children (Ages 6 and up)
School issues, behavior problems, discipline, AD/HD, poor social skills, bullying, trauma, eating disorders, mood disorders.
School issues, peer/social problems, drug/alcohol abuse, acting out behaviors, abuse/trauma, depression, anxiety, self-harm issues, eating disorders, body image, self-esteem.
Depression, anxiety, abuse/trauma, unresolved issues, lack of boundaries, addictions, eating disorders, anger issues, work issues, low self-worth, chronic pain or other medical issues, grief and loss, job issues.
Premarital, marital, divorce adjustment, remarriage, blended family work, parenting, communication and conflict resolution skills, sexual intimacy issues, infidelity, grief and loss.
***NOTE: Although I have spent about 20 years in helping couples and marriages in the traditional model of therapy, (ie: one hour a week, whenever a couple wants it, with no commitment to how many sessions, or how long to meet, with the focus being primarily on problems and the past, etc.), I have found that I no longer believe this to be the best model in bringing real transformation to relationships like marriage.
I now only offer couples and marriages the service of Relationship or Marriage Coaching. To learn more, go to www.wholeheartedmarriagecoaching.com

I offer Christians a unique approach to healing the heart. Instead of traditional therapy, I offer Spiritual Life Coaching that includes using Father Andrew Miller’s HeartSync inner healing prayer ministry model. Checkout the Coaching page for more.
