What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

As a client, you can expect to set goals, complete worksheets and see progress in your treatment plan.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

One type of treatment method that I use in therapy is psychoanalysis where you can expect to talk about anything on your mind to uncover patterns in thoughts or behavior that might be contributing to distress. It’s also common to talk about your childhood and past, along with recurring dreams or fantasies you might have. I also use CBT and Solution Focused Therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

One of my biggest strengths within my counseling techniques is the use of Faith-based Christian Counseling. I believe that everyone deserves to be happy. Christian counseling has the unique advantage of being able to approach issues holistically based on three dimensions—body, mind and spirit. A biblical understanding of how we’re made, as physical, psychological and spiritual beings, means all three of these dimensions play an important part in our health and happiness
