My approach in treating most clients is based in encouraging them to practice mindfulness skills that they are introduced to in the first session. They are instructed in the basic neural structures of the brain and are informed on how psychotherapy impacts the brain neurobiologically. Clients learn the science behind feelings of well being and inner peace and are taught skills that they practice every day between sessions so that they can influence the neural firing of their brains in life affirming ways. All clients are instructed in meditation or centering prayer, which is a crucial part of cultivating a well lived life.

I work from an integrated Biblical theoretical approach that includes cognitive behavioral therapy, emotional focused therapy, person-centered therapy, and Biblical principles. The amount of sessions are all based on the couples or individuals and their goals, but typically I incorporate a brief therapy approach of 6 to 8 sessions. Appointments are during the evenings and select Saturdays, all by appointment only. I work with couples (pre-engagement, pre-marital, marriage, and divorce recovery), individuals, and families.
