I specialize in helping individuals and couples work through personal and relational life challenges. My specialty is Marriage, Sexual Addiction Recovery and Partner Betrayal Trauma care. I can provide the knowledge and skill set necessary to help increase communications, rebuild trust/respect, along with emotional health - all of which help to improve and strengthen relationships. I have many years of combined experience working with Teenagers, Men, Women, Couples, and Families. I believe that by providing an increase in personal client empowerment combined with providing a safe, supportive, and caring therapeutic environment, I can help promote positive change and growth.
As a Christian counselor, I utilize several therapeutic models such as The Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI) models. For convenience, phone and/or video counseling sessions are available for those unable to attend in-person-world-wide.
I am a National Board Certified Counselor (NCC); Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT); Certified Multiple Addiction Therapist (CMAT); Certified Clinical Sexual Addiction Specialist (CCSAS); Certified Clinical Partner Specialist (CCPS); Trained in The Gottman Method; PREPARE and ENRICH trained; and EMDR trained. I am also a LLPC Supervisor.
