I apply Biblical principles with primarily insight oriented psychodynamic psychotherapy techniques to assist clients seeking to obtain deeper growth, change and healing in their lives, whether in their Christian walk, recovery from various addictions, abuse, or other trauma and for those trying to break unhealthy patterns and behaviors in their lives by getting to the root or core issues.

"Psychotherapy is the informed and intentional application of clinical methods and interpersonal stances derived from established psychological principles for the purpose of assisting people to modify their behaviors, cognitions, emotions, and/or other personal characteristics in directions that the participants deem desirable" (Norcross, 1990, p. 218-220 ) We use Freudian-based theories, object relations, attachment theories and self-psychology to assist our clients in identifying and understanding the underlying issues that may color their current relationships.

In psychotherapy, I strive to uncover and help the client learn to deal more effectively with the underlying causes of their difficulties in life. When logistical changes in their lives can be made to better their life situations, I bring out and foster the adoption of such. Ofter, however, deeper considerations are necessary and, in this regard, I try to help the client to relate to deeper issues that are root causes of the difficulties he or she experiences in life. Resolution of deeper issues generally leads to greater long term life satisfaction.

Using the Adlerian approach, I focus on you as a whole, because I believe that people are more than a diagnosis or an issue. We start by reviewing your family and past history to discover any patterns. We focus on your involvement with your community and how to gain a better sense of belonging. Additionally, we will also address how your thoughts reflect your actions in past and current events to approach future situations more confidently.

Psychotherapy may benefit anyone with an interest in learning and improving something about their ways of acting in the world and in relationships. People often come to the process because they feel stuck in their capacity to be successful in some area of life: in their important relationships, in their success at work, or some inner state the becomes problematic for them. Therapy can help you: -- Find new ways to cope with stress, anxiety, anger, depression, and other emotional difficulties. -- Improve your communications skills. -- Get "unstuck" from past relationships and family issues. -- Heal past injuries. -- Discover creative ways to problem-solve. -- Improve your self-esteem

One-on-one counseling provides an opportunity for people to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings while being assisted by a professional and caring guide. Clients often seek individual therapy due to some recent stress in their lives, or due to an ongoing conflict they have been unable to resolve alone. Although some people intially worry that talking about themselves will be awkward or uncomfortable, most people find individual sessions enjoyable and growth enhancing. While the client gains greater focus on her/his thoughts and feelings, the therapist acts as a non-judmental guide, helping the individual recognize patterns and finding ways to aviod past problems.

With your willingness and my training, we can work together to help you become the person you've always envisioned.

One does not need to hit rock bottom to seek psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is a privilege for everyone facing life's stresses/conflicts. Unlike prescribed medications that serve to suppress symptoms of our minds & bodies, one day at a time, psychotherapy goes to the roots of the issues, and then resolves them. That means, we don’t need to take meds all our lives. In the quiet, accepting, and safe environment of psychotherapy, we are invited to open up the parts of ourselves that were shut down, to free the knots that entangled our hearts. We talk through things and take away an arsenal of tools to reclaim our lives. Help is available. You can come home to your true self which is love.

My training and my practice have all involved psychotherapy in its different manifestations. I first learned the Reflective Approach from Carl Rogers, PhD at the University of Chicago. I then learned more analytic therapies, brief therapies and other skills such as hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing, and Biofeedback. Some of these techniques can be only used in the office.

Psychotherapy is a wonderful therapeutic approach for people who are experiencing some struggles with life, are ready to change, set goals, and heal. Encompassing talk therapy and a safe, supportive environment, you can begin to explore and challenge yourself, behaviors and thoughts and move toward recapturing your well being, motivation and insight.

Psychotherapy as a whole is a form of support I strongly believe can help anyone struggling with a wide array of issues. Simply having the space to confide in someone who is safe, non judgmental, validating, and consistent can make a great impact in your healing process. I value client-therapist alliance and am a firm believer that the relationship between a client and therapist is the most important factor in whether therapy will be deemed successful by the client.

Psychotherapy is a process of self discovery and skill learning. If a person comes in to learn some new skills and is willing to take the responsibility for meaningful change to occur, then the success of our work together goes up dramatically. I see psychotherapy as a process of working together on the things that the client wants to address with compassion and acceptance.

Psychotherapy - for those willing to take the journey - can be one of the most amazing experiences we do in life. When a person gets insight into their own psychological processes, and achieves that understanding of how it all comes together and interacts on a psychological level, it can be really empowering, liberating, and exciting. This can also be a bit scary to try because usually there is a lot going on before someone decides to find a therapist. But any journey starts with that first step - and that first step can be a great step.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

My approach to psychotherapy begins in working on developing with each of my clients an atmosphere of trust and respect. I believe that making the decision to engage a therapist in order to work on one's particular life challenges, is one of the most healthy choices we can make.! It is a choice for health. My clients benefit from therapy with me by experiencing a quick reduction in their anxiety and a clearer understanding of what they are up against - with themselves, their relationships and their lives. From that place of increased calm and improved self-understanding, my clients can then begin to make thoughtful and productive life choices.
