About

Hi- I look forward to meeting you! I am a licensed psychologist and work with children and adults. For adults, I specialize in life coaching, depression, and anxiety related issues. For children, I specialize in behavior disorders, autism, ADHD, PTSD, and depression. I also provide Christian-based counseling. I also provide psychological testing for ADHD and autism.
My speciality is working with adults with depression and anxiety. I use a cognitive-behavioral framework along with a solution-focused approach. . For children, I use the following approaches: trauma-focused CBT, applied behavior analysis, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I also enjoy incorporating one's faith into the treatment.
Meier Clinics specializes in using empirically based psychological principles in a Christian framework. If you do not wish to receive Christian-based counseling, that is okay as well.
