About

I am dedicated to helping people heal in their specific area of need. My general practice targets a multiplicity of needs by treating a variety of common psychological disorders (anxiety/phobias/depression, etc.), dysfunctional relationships (poor relationship choices, sexual "hang ups"), and stubborn repetitive habits/problems (procrastination, quick temper, etc). I have a technique that gets to the root of the problem, often quickly and very effectively, and helps people manage their lives differently from that point forward.
My specialty is relationships. Regardless of presenting problem, relationship healing is a part of treatment. Relationship counseling is not limited to marriage partners; resolution includes friendships or family. Emotional struggle, family dysfunction, and lack of coping skills contribute to difficulties. I provide understanding and tools to assist client's restoration.
Humans are physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual beings. Each of these components can affect another, so it's important to explore the interconnection. Not all therapist are willing to explore spirituality, but I am. So, for those clients who are interested, I can work within their framework of spirituality.
