Individual therapy provides you with the opportunity to
explore those things that are getting in the way of being the best version of
you possible. In general, I prefer to use
a combination of Person-Centered Therapy (PCT), Motivational Interviewing (MI)
and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help people gain insight into
themselves, look at what may be getting in the way of the change they wish to make and identify the schemas, cognitive distortions and skills necessary to achieve
the growth they desire. For those who choose to do so, I also incorporate biblical values, prayer and Bible study
into treatment. Family therapy looks at
the dynamics, roles and expectations within your family system, helping people
to look at themselves and the other members of the family in a different light,
heal relationships and change the way they interact with each other.
Many people ask what makes faith-based or Christian counseling different from traditional services. Unfortunately, there is no short, simple answer for this, but let me give it a shot: Christian counseling incorporates good clinical practice, biblical values and an understanding that there is a Counselor greater than us all, the Holy Spirit, who actively guides and directs the paths of those who believe. Some say that the beliefs of the therapist do not matter, for the session is guided by the beliefs of the person receiving services. For the Christian counselor, this is not true—not entirely, anyway.

Teaching, training and clinical supervision are areas about which I am extremely passionate. I can provide in-service training to agencies, churches or other organizations on a variety of topics for a nominal fee. You can choose an existing topic tailored to your needs, or I can create a unique team building, educational or training experience for your group. Clinical supervision is vital to the success of any mental health agency, practitioner or group. All therapists—whether 25 or 55, a month out of school or two decades—can benefit from quality clinical supervision. Applying the same principles to clinical supervision as I do to the therapeutic relationship, I strive to inform the next generation of clinicians to always act in the best interest of the people they support, put the needs of others before their own, and challenge themselves to provide the highest quality in clinical care.
