My approach to counseling is very individualistic based upon where the client is on his/her journey and what the individual needs are. People enter Counseling for a variety of reasons and life events. I approach each client based on what they bring into session. You are the expert on you. A part of my role is to be a guide, a sounding board, or a mirror of what is happening internally for you. My job is to support you in more fully knowing yourself and learning the patterns that have taught you toxic messages about yourself as well as more fully learning your own authenticity to become a more fuller authentic/real/genuine you. I use a variety of techniques, skills and interventions to help you achieve your goals. And sometimes more role is to help you sort through great confusion or grief to identify your goals and then help you come up with a plan to put them into practice, all the while teaching you practical tools to do so.

Our approach is very individualistic and we use a wide range of interventions depending on where the client is on his/her journey. One of our highest values in working with someone is our respect for their own process. We see our role as one that offers support as well as challenge with appropriate timing. When a client is ready, we enjoy guiding them to understand patterns that they learned in their family of origin. Helping them to identify, express, and release feelings about the wounding they experienced in order to stop unhealthy patterns in the present.. Our ultimate hope is to encourage in ways that move people closer to Christ.
We specialize in deep work with those who have experienced early loss, neglect, or trauma. We provide the safety and nurture necessary to explore painful family of origin issues that may continue to hinder individuals from living a fulfilled life. In addition, our experience in the area of substance abuse helps us to assist those struggling with addictive behaviors. We use experiential therapy in group, marital and family therapy.
