As a Christian, and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, my approach to therapy is under-girded by certain premises:
Life is a hard journey--seemingly impossible at times.
People are wounded in relationships.
People are healed through relationships.
The Ultimate Healer is our Maker and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
It is through relationship with Him that we are eternally healed.
I believe that Spiritual growth is foundational to lasting change, and I submit to the authority of Scripture in all matters of faith and practice.
In my counseling, I utilize the Scriptures and a variety of well-researched and proven therapies, where their techniques are Biblically congruent.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches practical skills to identify and modify self-defeating thought patterns.
Family Systems theories help us understand the impact that our family of origin, our previous relationships, and our current relationships, have upon our present circumstances.
Emotionally Focused Therapy and Hope Focused Couples Therapy are two of the most effective approaches to healing marriages and relationships. EFT helps a person make sense of negative relationship cycles, heal hurts, and foster a closer emotional attachment with a spouse. HOPE focused Therapy offers highly effective communication and conflict resolution methods and trains couples in forgiveness.
My clients and I work together to determine which areas they want to focus upon in therapy, how long they want therapy to last and what homework strategies they will utilize between sessions. My role is to help you reach your therapeutic goals and get on with your life—without me! So, I invite you to call me today. Let’s see how I can help you find healing, hope and growth to become the person you were created to be!
