I seek to be open and inclusive with each client. I want each person to feel welcomed understood. I am trained in in-depth psychotherapy and enjoy exploring the deeper roots of presenting problems with a goal of practical application of insight. I am a licensed Clinical Pastoral Therapist & clinical supervisor with over 20 years of counseling experience. I particularly like working with couples in crisis. I have experience with clergy and clergy families, spiritual issues & issues of faith, Addiction Recovery, Anxiety, Depression, Grief & loss, Dilemmas in parenting, Premarital counseling, Relationship issues, Self-image issues, Sexual problems, Stress & Trauma among other presenting issues.

Pastoral Counseling uses spiritual resources and psychological understanding for healing and growth. Pastoral Counselors are mental health professionals who also have in-depth religious and theological training, but we are open to working with clients of all faiths, those who have been hurt by their faith tradition, and those who identify with no faith.

I offer premarital counseling utilizing the SYMBIS assessment. I may also be willing to officiate wedding ceremonies/commitment ceremonies for pre-marital clients. Wedding services and fees are separate from premarital counseling.
