My Goal as a Christian Counselor
My goal is to create a space where you feel completely at ease to explore the issues in your life that prevent you from living fully. As a trained psychotherapist, I aim to empower you to work toward positive change, both personally and relationally. I strive to encourage and support my clients while challenging them to think deeply about their own thought processes and behaviors, so that they are able to achieve lasting, positive change.
My special focus areas in counseling are:
- Dissociative Identity Disorder
- Aging and Geriatric Issues
- Codependency and Boundaries
- Sexual Abuse
- Hearing God’s voice
What I Can Offer You as a Christian Counselor
I can offer you a safe, welcoming place to work toward health and wholeness. I believe positive transformation is best accomplished when you feel affirmed in your strengths, challenged in your weaknesses, and loved in your relationships; I will do my best to make these a part of your counseling experience. As a Christian, I am happy to pray with you and to explore Biblical responses to your concerns—yet all are welcome in my office, regardless of faith.
My Counseling Approach: What You Can Expect in Therapy
My counseling style varies from client to client, and I endeavor to tailor my approach to each individual who seeks my help. Most of the time, I rely on a variety of techniques, including Biblical, and cognitive behavioral therapeutic LI (Life Integration) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) methods. My approach tends to be collaborative: together we will brainstorm how our time can be best put to use. If you are a person of faith, I try to incorporate your spirituality into our sessions. Above all, you can expect an enthusiastic partner and respectful professional who is dedicated to you and your goals.
On a Personal Note
I have a network of wonderful friends and family who have supported me through every challenge of life, and I endeavor to have both older and younger people in my life at all times. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing other people accomplish their goals. In my spare time, I enjoy playing music, entertaining, getting outdoors, and spending time with the people I love.
