Online Therapy

About Me

I work with individuals, couples, and groups whose lives have been disrupted by anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, traumatic events, substance abuse, and sexual addiction. My goal is to accept clients unconditionally, where they are, as they are. I provide a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere in which my clients can explore, process and find freedom from the issues that hinder them from fulfilling their God-given roles. To best meet the needs of my clients, I use a variety of modalities including EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Somatic Experiencing, and Mindfulness strategies. I empower my clients by helping them understand the issues they face and equip them with practical tools and strategies they can apply immediately. Once the most pressing needs are addressed, we work together to identify and process underlying issues (e.g., childhood trauma, unresolved conflicts, resentments, ineffective coping skills, attachment and family of origin wounds).
