Sharing personal information with someone new can be difficult. During my years of counseling I have observed the many benefits individuals experience when overcoming their initial reluctance, seek help and feel the relief that comes from sharing intimate concerns with a caring, knowledgeable professional. Problems such as anxiety, depression or addiction can be overwhelming but becoming aware of feelings and beliefs that underlie these problems, along with the resources that can bring healing gives people hope. I believe my professional & life history have enabled me to provide meaningful therapeutic experiences for others.
Finding a caring, knowledgeable counseling professional can be a challenging process. Those that find one they can relate to & trust with their personal stories & concerns find it of great benefit. I believe my education, professional & personal history has brought me to the place of being that effective, compassionate helper. I have many years of experience in Individual & Family Therapy in both the Mental Health & Substance Abuse fields.
I have worked over 25 years with people having mood disorders; addictions and family dysfunction including marital and parenting problems. Other areas include, stress management, employment and management problems, Christian counseling, military and trauma related issues. I use a variety of techniques including Family Systems, CBT and Gestalt techniques.
