As a licensed mental health professional the past several decades, I've been providing psychological evaluations and comprehensive behavioral analysis, case management, treatment planning, individual & group therapy, facilitating psycho-educational seminars and classes, and crisis management. I have practiced in mental hygiene clinics, hospitals, private practice, addiction treatment programs, correctional facilities, military installations, and universities. I hold an undergraduate degree in behavioral psychology from Arizona State University, an MA in psychology at the University of Texas and an M Div from Liberty University. I am credentialed to practice psychotherapy in AZ and WA and I am a member of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science, the National Association of Alcohol and Drug Counselors, the Arizona Counselor's Association, and the American Association of Christian Counselors.
My credentials and clinical experience presuppose extensive practicum and training, study in psychology, theology, and spirituality as well as a commitment to the helping profession. I’ve used a variety of treatment modalities that are client centered, evidence based, and trauma sensitive in delivering therapeutic intervention, counseling and education which have involved the issues of: addiction, anger management, anxiety, depression, dissociation, divorce, domestic violence, grief and loss, personality disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, and relationship issues. I have an appreciation for many counseling approaches and currently function as an Acceptance and Commitment Therapist.
My approach to the therapeutic experience has been proven effective irrespective of orientation to life, philosophy or religion since it is all about discovery of strategies for reducing the suffering of negative, painful, and difficult inner experience and building psychological flexibility.
