Marriage can be difficult. Two people who struggle with their own personal issues work to meld their lives together, but in that process they may become stuck in a disruptive cycle of blame shifting. As fallen humans, we tend to serve ourselves before we serve others. The goal is peace in the marriage, but that can seem so elusive at times. Pornography and sexual addiction can also effectively tear apart marriages, but there is hope to put off these behaviors and put on God-honoring habits.

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with additional training in EMDR.
Saturdays and evenings appointments available. Am I the right therapist for you? Helping client's is the primary goal of every therapist. What can you do for me that the others can't? That is a valid question. Many healthcare providers provide symptom management rather than treating the main problem. I mainly use Solution Focused Therapy to focus on client's present and future and to find solutions for their problems. The therapy is not about me; its about you. However, in addition to my years of education, I bring a life-time of personal life experience and an extensive personal knowledge to the sessions.

As a Pastoral Counselor, I LOVE helping people and my goal is to support you in your relationships and life struggles, help you overcome tough challenges, manage stress, and provide you the tools and caring support to help you embrace the true joy and peace you desire in your personal life, marriage, family, career or schooling.
We all could benefit from talking to someone who understands what we are going through when life gets challenging. But more than that, we need someone to talk to who really values us deeply and offers practical tools each time. That is why resistant husbands continue to come see me and benefit from our time together. As well as young men, women, & adolescents in various stages of life struggles. My clients quickly realize they are genuinely cared for while receiving helpful, life changing insights that transform their thinking, how they approach life.
