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.

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 approach to individual psychotherapy is generally cognitive brief therapy. I assess for strengths and vulnerabilities, and focus my efforts in helping the individual to build upon strengths in ways that produce personal success and positive self identity. I build on whatever faith base one has, incorporating healing prayer, imagery, biblical truths, and skill development. I use personality assessment tools to target specific skill and traits that promote positive results based on client's overall goals.
