About


My Style

I have an engaging, relaxed style and sense of humor that allows people to have fun even while doing serious work in counseling. Being approachable and easy to talk to, informal and friendly, people tell me that they feel they can relax and be open with me. I also give you feedback, information, guidance, and answers to your questions. People find that refreshing, as they want to really know what they're dealing with and what to do about it. There is a vast spectrum of psychological technology and information available in this day and age that I want to pass on to you.

Practical Approach

In contrast to many other therapists, I offer my clients practical guidance and answers to your questions. I have gained the experience to be able to quickly connect with you, understand what you're dealing with and point the direction for change. We will work together to see real changes in your life, results you can recognize.

Integrative Therapy

Many people have questions that have a spiritual element, whether trying to understand your purpose in life, trying to get your mind around the suffering you've had to deal with, or the painful experiences you may have had with organized religion. You may want guidance from a spiritual perspective too, not just psychological. While I am most familiar with Christian tradition, you have the option of discussing your own spiritual experience and reflection.
