My Approach and Methods

I am a person-centered therapist, which means simply that my approach is to get to know you and follow your lead. I want to know what hurts and what it would be like for you to not only feel better but get better. It's important to me to understand how you're feeling and what you're experiencing here and now, while also wanting to help you move forward. I strongly believe that the best work is done when we're ready to change - when it's harder to stay the same than it is to try something different. It's hard! I will be your advocate as you challenge yourself, but will also hold space for you to be completely honest with where you are.

Healing is a messy process, so nothing is off the table. We'll roll up our sleeves and get into the nitty gritty. Insight is powerful, so I'll work with you to explore and understand not only the symptoms but also the root causes of your pain.

I take an eclectic approach to therapy that allows me to tailor to your unique needs. Here are some methods that I use:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for its evidence-based effectiveness in the treatment of anxiety and panic

  • Attachment Theory and Family of Origin work to help understand where you are coming from and to inform the way forward

  • Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy interventions for couples

  • Prepare/Enrich certified facilitator for premarital counseling.

As a Christian therapist, my faith informs my work. I value the integration of faith and counseling to cultivate health and wholeheartedness--if it is helpful to you and the challenges that you are experiencing. I welcome you regardless of your faith background, whether that is a big part of your life or whether you prefer to leave it at the door.
