My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Through the use of CBT therapy client's are able to understand the relationship between triggers, thoughts, emotions, and how they result in specific behaviors. Through that realization clients are able to identify troublesome thought patterns and how to challenge and change those thought patterns to alleviate stress and anxiety.

Christian Counseling

I have been a devout Christian for 37 years and I am an ordained Non-Denominational Minister. Client's I believe faith is a power tool that can promote the healing process and for more than 15 years, I have been helping clients identify how faith can be an integral part of their journey to healing. I respect others who do not share the same religious beliefs and am able to provide healthy beneficial treatment for person's of all religions and beliefs.
