It is important that my patients feel respected and encouraged. My job is to really listen and help you feel understood. I also think my role is to give you lots of feedback and not just be a passive listener saying, "uh, uh, hmm, I see, hmm". I am a coach, cheerleader, teacher, confidante, and accountability partner. The biggest complaint I have heard over the years about any past therapists whom patients felt were not helpful was the complaint that the past therapist was way too passive. I work best with those that want a therapist high in empathy but is not passive.
I have 26 years in mental health work, hold a Master's degree in counseling psychology which involved two years of academic and clinical training, hold a Ph.D. (doctorate) in clinical psychology which involved 7 years of academic, clinical, and research training. Becoming a psychologist I underwent extensive supervised practice and multiple licensing examinations.
In addition to daytime appointments I can see patients Monday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. There is ample parking. I have a background in supervising Masters level or MFT therapists. I have a strong Christian faith commitment but work with many people that don't.
