It is often said that life is a journey in which you experience "ups and downs." Unfortunately for many who experience a down time, there are difficulties overcoming barriers when trying to go back "up" again. I want to meet you where you are when you are overwhelmed by those barriers. I want to walk with you and work with you toward an improved quality of life while helping you arm yourself with the necessary tools to navigate through any future barriers.

If you're searching for a therapist who will encourage you to stay in counseling for years while holding your hand singing camp songs, I suggest you keep looking. But if you prefer a trained clinician whose approach to counseling is goal-oriented and solution-focused, give me a call. You can trust that I will be sensitive and empathetic, but since you are hiring me to do a job, I will be directive in identifying the best approach to solve your problems. I'm qualified to treat a wide variety of issues (see the list below), but the majority of my clinical practice focuses on Relational/Marriage issues as well as Anxiety/Depression.

While life can be joyful and beautiful, at times it can also be painful and lonely. At times like this it can be helpful to have someone who's been there - who's experienced addiction and significant grief and loss - to share the journey through hard times. Adding to my personal experience and using up to date, research based techniques I accept clients where they are and help them get to where they want to go. Whether recovering from addiction and/or mental illness, resolving grief, or just coping with life's difficulties you don't have to journey alone.

Life presents us with challenges and opportunities that sometimes require consultation. Often, change and healing are facilitated by assistance from caring others. I have repeatedly witnessed the resiliency of the human spirit. I am eager to meet with clients motivated for change and curious about the possibility of having more satisfying lives. I believe that psychotherapy requires trust and a working relationship. I am a compassionate listener and tailor my approach to best match the uniqueness of each client. I approach problems from a strengths-based, holistic perspective that considers a client's relevant biological, developmental, social, and cultural factors.

Has life been getting harder to handle lately? I can help you get to the heart of the matter quickly and then we can co-creative solutions tailored to your specific needs. My clients describe being in therapy with me as being involved in 'deeper work.' Sometimes the life disruption you are experiencing may be the beginning of an evolution toward a new stage, where life eventually becomes easier and more peaceful. Adult stage theory was the central theory in my doctoral program. I also am trained in leadership assessment and coaching models based on adult stage theory. Life does not have to keep being so hard.

I work as a therapist because I believe we can experience real healing in our lives. The broken world in which we live frequently leaves scars and wounds. And we often wound others. As a Christian therapist I believe God heals significantly. I work with Christians and non Christians alike with respect for individual values and beliefs. Therapy begins with developing a respectful, trusting relationship. The client and therapist begin a journey to enable the client to reconcile, their past, their present, and their beliefs. It can enable them to work toward future goals successfully.

Trying to cope with the constant uncertainty and unrest during this Pandemic, can leave you feeling traumatized. We are being advised to "socially distance", even from family and friends-the very attachments that sustain us through the viscitudes of life. Struggling with Financial stress? Social justice issues? The Pandemic has permeated every aspect of our lives-our minds, our bodies and sense of hope about the future. I can help!

Counseling can bring relief, resolution, clarity, freedom, or help you overcome a challenge. My counseling style is encouraging, empowering, nonjudgmental, and thorough. I am trained in many different approaches to the counseling process and I will work to customize a plan that works for you.

I believe the objective of counseling is to help individuals make sense out of emotional chaos. This comes through primarily understanding two things, 1. We are products of our environment, we do what we know. 2. We all have the power to change unhealthy or unwanted behavior.
