In therapy, you will learn how to become your own therapist. You will rational emotive thinking skills, critical thinking skills, mindfulness techniques and how to apply the five keys to success. You will learn to overcome depression and anxiety so you can reach your long-term goals. You will learn how to deal with negative emotions, such as jealousy, envy, and feeling hurt and unhealthy anger. You will learn new behaviors that will decrease self-defeating beliefs that interfere with your relationships and new emotional responses that will reduce self-defeating beliefs and interfere with your ability to solve problems.

My Mission is to "Help People to Help Themselves." In counseling, we work hard at facing significant challenges and making responsible choices. In therapy, we build meaningful goals, and we discover skills to accept the world, others, and yourself unconditionally.

From 1976 to 2001, I received supervised training in behavior therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy with Dr. Albert Ellis. In 1985, I completed my dissertation with Dr. Raymond Cattell on measurements of depression and personality traits. I continue to expand my methods in mindfulness techniques, yoga, and Christian Counseling.
