          About:

          During your first session in my office you will likely become comfortable with sharing issues so as to begin making significant progress. You will find empathy for and validation of your emotional pain. I believe the total person needs to be considered in regards to gender, temperament, personality and personal beliefs.

          My theoretical focus has been in Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, and Bowen’s Extended Family therapy. However, I have found Emotionally Focused therapy to be very effective with couples, and make application of it often. Because you will have your emotions validated in a very powerful and empathetic manner, you will not feel overwhelmed when confronted with a challenge to change. I have a background in biblical studies, which is helpful in dealing with the spiritual dimension of life.

          I have a tremendous amount of confidence in the therapy I provide for my clients because I use the same principles I experienced applying for transforming my life and rescuing my marriage from the brink of divorce many years ago. I wanted to offer others the same help I received, but did not have opportunity to go back to school for the proper education until my youngest child was in high school. I have received great joy in giving others the help I received.
