My goal as a therapist is to help people find healing & joy in their lives so that they can live as they were created to & reach out beyond themselves.
I have been a therapist for nearly 15 years and worked with people of all ages (children, teens, families, parents, adults, couples) using a variety of therapy modalities including: cognitive, Christian, art, sand-tray & play therapies. I tend to use a person and strength based approach to therapy, which means I go where my clients need/want to go and I encourage the strengths I see in them while also promoting growth in other areas.
I have experience in helping people develop healthier coping skills for stress, anxiety, anger, grief & depression, as well as, improve relationships with their children, spouses and extended families. Some of my favorite things to do are to help clients see the good in their lives, then dream of the future and develop practical steps towards achieving those dreams. It is very fulfilling to see people make progress in areas they desire to see change, and to recognize their on strengths!
