I'm here to help you grow and change on your passage through life! Sometimes people have challenges to start with like thinking differently, or a difficult family. We may have questions about whether we still fit into a social or religious group. Challenges are harder if depression or anxiety hold us back or if we feel like we're stuck. Finding an empathetic, experienced therapist can be a connection to taking you out of isolation and uncovering your innate ability to change. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have done my own work to grow and I look forward to helping you!

I began practicing Christian counseling in 1992 after working as a social worker and substance abuse treatment counselor since 1984. I graduated from Regent University in 1989 where I learned how to integrate psychology with a view of what fits a Biblical/Christian counseling approach. Although most of my clients want Christian counseling, some are just looking for a moral perspective. About half of my caseload are individuals with issues like depression, anxiety, sexual trauma and stressful life situations. The other half are couples and families working through marital and child/adolescent problems and the impact on their families.

Clients who benefit from therapy with me are often individuals who have felt misunderstood, marginalized, or even harmed by the mental health system. Whether because of sexuality, gender identity, spiritual beliefs, neurodivergence, or non-mainstream relationships, they have found therapy to be unwelcoming, unhelpful, or unsafe. No one can heal in the absence of emotional safety, so my first priority is helping you establish safety with me. This means engaging as fully as possible with your preferences, values, and needs, and trusting you to be the expert on you. You're always steering the ship in your therapy--I am only a guide.

People run into relationship problems for all sorts of reasons. You may be struggling to meet someone you connect with. Or, if you are in a blended family, integrating new family members and reconciling differences in parenting styles can cause a lot of stress and tension. Different expectations for the relationship often create unique challenges for couples and everyone brings their own baggage to the relationship. And if you are in a Neurodiverse (Autism/ASD)relationship or marriage, you may be struggling to navigate the nuances of your partner’s behaviors or needs. I can provide clarity, insight and direction for your struggles.

Often the first step towards making a change is taking a realistic look at where you've been, where you are now, and where you want to be. Although it can be painfully difficult at first, you can begin making changes, one day at a time, that will take you closer to living the life you desire. Using EMDR and talk therapy, we'll focus on healing the wounds of the past, finding joy in the present, and bringing clarity to your future. It's time for you let go of the things that hold you back and start to discover all the ways in which you were meant to shine. Hope and healing are at the heart of what I have to offer.

What all of my clients have in common is a desire to be self-reflective (even though this may be scary), to learn more about themselves at a deeper (unconscious) level, and to grow in ways that allow them to have the life and relationships for which their hearts yearn. Psychotherapy is a process of learning to listen to, care for and heal the pained parts of ourselves that burden our mind, body, heart and spirit. Including the body in this process is essential, as it carries our pain until we learn how to engage the brain and body to release our burdens. This is not always easy, but is certainly self-empowering and life-changing.

As parents, we all want our children to be happy well adjusted individuals who are taking steps toward reaching their full potential. So it goes without saying that one of the most difficult things to do is to watch our children struggle in school and feel powerless in knowing how to help them. If your child is performing below grade level or exhibiting behavioral problems at home and school, these constant struggles may be evoking feelings of intense sadness, anxiety, and frustration in both you and your child and negatively impacting other areas of both your lives.

This means that I place particular emphasis on emotions and relationships, and that I strive to be emotionally present and available for authentic connection. It is my belief and experience that the work and healing of therapy occur within this connection. Therapy is thus a collaborative process of building an affirming relationship that leads to meaningful change.
