I would describe my practice as helping people work through life issues in ways that promote relational, emotional and spiritual growth. My clinical areas of interest include spirituality, depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. I also specialize in working with men's issues. I apply a Christian/faith-based approach to counseling and am trained in both theology and professional counseling. I am an ordained minister and pastoral counselor. I don't impose my beliefs on clients, and respect all faith/spiritual traditions as valuable resources for healing. Areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, personality disorders, faith crisis, marriage, family, adolescent, and relationship issues.
My primary counseling orientation is psychodynamic, although I am also trained in narrative, solution-focused, and cognative-behavioral methods of counseling. I also use Mindfulness training as part of the counseling process. My personal counseling style is quiet, caring, and growth-oriented. I have been described by clients as professional, relational, pastoral, and insightful.
I think what distinguishes my practice from other Christian/faith-based counselors is that I don't have a rigid or dogmatic approach to my care for people. I am a seeker of spiritual truth, and believe God loves all people, regardless of their religion or faith tradition.
