Announcement icon I am currently available for telehealth video sessions that can occur in the ease & comfort of your current location.
I work with couples struggling through issues such as affair recovery, pre-marital counseling and general relationship problems. Along with that I work with men struggling with sexual addiction or intimacy issues and I have a certification in sexual addiction treatment. I am also privileged to work with people recovering from childhood abuse and trauma by helping them process and heal from the violence they have experienced. With my background in hospice I also do a lot of grief work and specialize in working with the surviving family members of those who have died by suicide.
I prefer to work from a psychodynamic perspective with couples, families, and individuals along with an attachment perspective. Attachment theory is the study of how we bond and posits that people are meant to be in relationship.
I have been working as a hospice chaplain and grief counselor for the past seven years and currently work as an adjunct professor for MidAmerica Nazarene University. Faith is not important to everyone so I do not push my faith and I work with all clients regardless of faith.
