It has been a lifelong goal to help, encourage, and empower others to find healing, restoration, and hope through faith and in and through current situation(s). I believe that each individual is created in God’s image and is loved, accepted, and has inherent value. I look forward to building a collaborative partnership with clients to not only improve functioning, but to identify and utilize their strengths to obtain individual goals, while also helping them to learn better coping skills and achieve lifelong change. Although therapy will be tailored to individual needs, I favor Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach, because of both its empirical support and premise that thought directly affects feelings and behavior. Additionally, working from a future focused perspective Narrative Therapy aids in empowering clients to utilize strengths to achieve desired counseling goals. Faith integration is available upon request.
