Originally trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist I now use a variety of talk therapy techniques. People seeing me can definitely expect me to listen, to encourage them to tell me about themselves, especially how they came to be the way they are, how they want to be, think or feel differently. I do not prescribe or tell people what to do. Some of what I offer has an instructional feel as I do use imagery, cognitive or behavioral techniques. While I am a Christian pastor I am sensitive to people of all faiths, respect their traditions and DO NOT impose my faith upon them. I very rarely include prayer or mention scriptures to people and DO NOT consider any faith a "magic bullet".

Psychotherapy is a relationship between the client and therapist based on trust and a shared sense of hope. In this joint undertaking we listen to each other. I help the client learn how to use an internal sense of silence to help still past and present distractions that keep the client from living in the present. The ultimate goal of psychotherapy is freedom -- to be able to determine new paths by dropping attachments to emotions and behaviors that may have been helpful in the past, but are hinderances now. As therapist, I use a variety of techniques to help the client learn how to be calm, focused on the present moment, and receptive to the possibilities life offers.

Psychotherapy is the general concept of being able to support your individual mental health needs. I strive to provide a supportive and validating approach, paired with looking at the patterns, thoughts, and behaviors that have contributed to your current struggles. Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, relationship, or other concerns, we can use psychotherapy to explore where you are coming from and get you on your way to where you'd rather be.
