The Therapeutic Approach
We will work on as much or as little as you choose to. I am an interactive systemic therapist who desires to help bring healing to the whole-person using techniques from various clinical approaches including family systems theory, cognitive behavioral, REBT, strategic, solution-focused, Gestalt, existential and positive psychology. I want to work with you in a team approach to meet your goals for treatment and will look at your issues from a perspective that examines your mental, emotional, behavioral, social and spiritual situations.
I believe that each area of a person’s life can affect them and therefore, each area should be explored, as applicable and desired. As we work on your therapy goals, I will consider your medical history and physical health, your social life, your work life, how you handle emotions and your thought processes, as well as behaviors. I also explore the spiritual side of you because ultimately, we will live what we believe. If you believe you are worthless, you will live that way. But if you truly believe you have great worth and have hope for your life, you will live that as well. And although I am a follower of Jesus by faith and practice and can offer Biblical/Christian counseling as a part of the therapeutic process, I also treat clients of all walks of life and faith. I will honor you where you are in your spiritual journey.
I have been treating therapy clients in private practice for over 20 years. I am honored to be chosen and trusted by my clients to help them heal and overcome various difficulties in life.
Over the years, I have worked with nearly every kind of trauma and the aftermath that follows. This led me to specializing in trauma recovery, eating disorders and relationships.
In fact, 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 and/or with God.
I no longer see couples in therapy unless there is a diagnosed mental illness in one partner and it is the focus of care. Otherwise, all couples, marriage or family issues relating to communication, conflict, etc. is addressed in private coaching, group programs or retreats. For more information, see the Coaching page.
