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.

We are amazingly complex beings, especially when it comes to our psychology. Current research is showing that much of our behavior is driven by deeper, more emotion-based parts of the brain. Therefore, my approach to therapy addresses both the immediate, short-term habits of behavior, as well as the deeper roots of our feelings. Depression, anxiety, fears, anger... all these can be the result of unresolved feelings and injuries. Together, we can explore the most effective approach to healing.

My psychotherapeutic approach is based on the time-tested intervention that is called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT helps people understand how their thoughts can control their actions and vice versa. Once one of those is altered, the other can subsequently follow, resulting in a happier and healthier life for you and those around you. It is a powerful path to successful treatment with many mental health challenges.

I use psychotherapy to assist clients with a variety of issues and concerns. In addition to providing traditional talk psychotherapy, I also like to integrate the clients talents and interests into my work with them. Possible integrations include artistic activities, music, outdoor activities, and other passions. Narrative therapy activities can also be involved!

Psychotherapy can be defined as "talk therapy." The main goal of this type therapy is to help people talk through their problems with the intent of them working through their issues. Our approach to the counseling process is a little different than this. We have more of a training process approach to helping people work through their problems. That training process involves taking a deeper look at the cause of their problems. Then we give Biblical counsel as to what a person can do to change their thinking about specific problems that will cause a change in their behavior.

As a trained psychotherapist and counselor, my aim is to help my clients challenge and rewrite the negative automatic thoughts and negative core beliefs that they hold of themselves. Beliefs such as "I am not worthwhile" or "I am stupid" or "I am too much or not enough" were often learned in childhood. Many clients find relief from cognitive behavioral therapy which helps them examine and change negative behaviors, thoughts and emotions which lead to anxiety and depression and a host of other mental health problems. Clients also benefit from EMDR, an evidence based psychotherapy which has proven to be effective in helping those struggling with distressing negative memories and PTSD.

Psychotherapy is an empirically validated intervention. Simply put...IT WORKS! It's important that you establish a working alliance and feel safe, heard, and that you receive genuine empathy. I offer free consultations to develop an understanding of where we will begin, what therapy entails, and what it means for you. Your experience is tailored to you based on an integrative perspective. I have a desire to create a safe space in which you may flourish. If you seek emotional, mental, or spiritual improvements, I am here to help!

The Experiential process is structured to encourage safe exploration of emotions, thoughts, behaviors contained in the experience with a third object to develop insight into behavior patterns and defense mechanisms for coping with life. The therapeutic relationship is the vehicle through which the healing and growth process occurs as much of the new learning is in the context of how it plays out with the support of the therapist in the immediate environment. The task orientation of the activities and techniques allow for the client to focus with the therapist on the third object to resolve the issue together. Client empowerment, personal responsibility, and self- determination is promoted.

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.
