My specialty, dialectical behavior therapy ( DBT ), encourages focusing on facts, rather than emotions or value judgements.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my primary goal is to assist my clients in finding purpose and meaning in their lives. My 20 plus year career has been dedicated to helping people improve their quality of life, regardless of their situation. I believe skilled counseling can be beneficial to all individuals in every season. I have facilitated both family and couple therapy and have also worked with clients dealing with addictions. I have come alongside clients in all phases of life and have spoken on a national level on the topics of suffering and end-of-life decisions.

I use dialectical behavior therapy skills.
I have been in education for 35 years and served adolescents as a counselor for the past 20 years. My areas of interest include anxiety, panic attacks, grief and phobias that clients often experience. What I find most helpful to people is to provide a warm and safe place to express the feelings and experiences in a non-judgmental atmosphere. I also believe it is important to instill confidence in them. These days it seems the relationship between client and therapist is more important than ever and I hope to build such bonds.

Training in research based practices, like EMDR, CBT, ACT, and DBT allows me to provide my clients the best care.
Let's talk about why things are so hard. Why you're doing the same old thing day in and day out despite wanting to change. Why you're waking up and wishing that the pills you took the night before had actually worked. Why in spite of all the things you've done to try and recover from your eating disorder or addiction, you feel like you've made no progress. Let's get down to the root of things and face them head on. If you're ready to get to work, let's talk.

Using Family Systems Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Therapy can be very helpful in addressing problems you may be having in your life. If you struggle with relationship problems, decision making, depression, anxiety, self esteem, impluse control, trauma, substance abuse, grief, addiction or life transitions; I can provide a neutral non-judgmental space to explore and resolve these issues. Many people believe they should be able to solve problems on their own and seek help often waiting until the situation has grown unmanageable. However, early interventions and proactive actions tend to lesson the impact of painful experiences, allowing you to move past problems more easily and quickly.

Through the use of evidence-based therapies specific to my patient’s needs such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy, biblical counseling, and DBT ( dialectical behavioral therapy).
Throughout my experience as a counselor, I have noticed that our shame is the foundational and often times our biggest barrier to success. My approach is to help client's identify and replace these shame-based thoughts and become more aware of how these thoughts impact the way they see themselves, others, and the world around them. Once you can view your authentic self as someone that is worthy, goals can be clearly defined, progress can be made, and healing can be obtainable. While this isn't the only consideration in counseling, it is one of great importance.
