My primary theoretical approach is psycho-dynamic, relational, and holistic. I utilize techniques from a variety of treatment modalities such as family-systems, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, narrative, and mindfulness therapies. I understand psychotherapy to be a collaborative process between the client and therapist. It is the honest emotional encounters between the two of us that I believe to be healing in its ability to manifest change in your life. Although I cannot promise any treatment outcomes, I can ensure you that I commit to bring my skills, abilities, and competencies as therapist to help meet your goals.
As a trained pastoral counselor, I welcome conversation around issues pertaining to one’s faith or religious tradition. For some, spiritual issues can be a place of pain that a person seeks to avoid or work through. For others, one’s experience and expression of faith is a priceless resource in terms of offering support to one’s healing and growth. An individual who enters my office at any point along this diverse spectrum will find their experience honored and respected. However, you will also find that neither religious nor spiritual values will be imposed on my behalf. All are welcome in my office.
