People come to me wanting help with change -- change in their personal life or change
in their romantic relationship / marriage or change in their family. I work together
with my clients to help them discover their unique talents, skills, approaches, and
perspectives. Change occurs in the context of the therapy relationship as clients
discover, embrace and develop their strengths while I act as encourager,
mentor, challenger, and teacher.
My style of work is extremely relational, very involved, and often direct. I am
committed to finding and encouraging each person's unique strengths while adapting
my style to their personality and temperament. Sometimes laughter is key in my work,
sometimes tears, while self-acceptance with compassion is often encouraged.
I am passionate about helping strengthen marriages / committed relationships;
equipping parents with effective skills; encouraging men, women, and adolescents in
identity development; supporting those faced with infertility, bereavement, loss, or
trauma; and partnering with those wounded in Christian faith-based environments such as homes,
churches, schools, colleges, and the work place.
