Areas I Counsel:

The list below is a basic overview of areas I tend to focus on in my practice. I don’t like putting people in “boxes” or “lists”. However, this is a precise way to communicate the scope of my therapeutic abilities. Please note that if you have a concern or issue that is not listed I am happy to explore and discuss with you if I am an appropriate fit. Ultimately, beyond the presenting issues, having the right fit with your therapist tends to be most helpful in the therapy work you accomplish.

Treatment Modalities:

There are many formalized approaches/theories in the world of counseling! While I value and have studied many styles of counseling, I prefer treating you as an individual rather than a “subject”. I believe it is more important that we have an appropriate therapeutic relationship as I incorporate helpful tools, techniques, and modaliteis that best support you. I can list many evidenced based therapies that I work from, but I rather you and I have a human to human conversation about what could be most appropriate for you. You will lead this process , and I will guide you as we discover solutions and options for your growth and change. If I am working with your child, I encourage family involvement so we can collaborate as a team to ensure the family system heals and improves.

Christian Counseling 

I am a believer that through Christ’s grace, love, and mercy we can be healed. A huge passion of mine is to help people by showing and presenting Christ’s love in the counseling session. Through our close relationship with God, we are able to experience a deeper connection and purpose in life. Christian Counseling can be a way for believers to express freely about their faith and relationship with God in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Prayer and direction from the Lord is also a major part of the therapeutic process. I never impose Christian Counseling or my faith on anyone, and I respect those who are looking for a different treatment modality. It is important that you feel safe and non-judged, and I strive to maintain an environment where people can come receive help and support regardless of their spiritual background.
