I provide Christian and traditional counseling. I integrate proven secular psychological theories in the therapeutic relationship. Although many forms of therapies may be used, for individuals I mainly utilize cognitive therapy
since many problems are rooted in history or current thinking. This therapy involves the teaching of principles for practical living, modeling, skills training, restructuring and problem solving. For couples I use Gottman Method Couples Therapy based on over 40 years of research on couple relationships and is focused on what makes relationships succeed or fail. Your treatment is always a collaborative process between you and me; it is important you are comfortable and confident in the decision making processes that lead you toward what you want to accomplish and who you want to be.
My foundational belief is that Biblical principles speak to meaning, purpose and change needed in order to achieve healthy relationships with God, the individual themselves and with others. I use Christian principles in the therapeutic process as a source for real personal growth always in a non-coercive manner. I incorporate spiritual insight at a level you are comfortable with, but it is never forced. Christ’s model in the New Testament shows He always spoke the Truth, and always gave the person a choice to believe. In addition, it is proven to be therapeutic for each individual to come to their own decisions and be enabled regarding their personal growth, development and healing.
