My approach is to form a safe compassionate bond with my client, examine their pain and teach the client to listen to the wisdom found within one's self for hope and for change.
I deal with marital/relational strife, trauma, anxiety disorders, PTSD, sex abuse victims, sex addiction, grief, end of life issues, and loved ones surviving suicide or murder.
Early in my career I worked extensively with teenagers. I now work with adults of all ages.
With my faith, I have traveled through many years and avenues of helping human beings in a variety of settings and with myriad of problems. I have witnessed the greatness of the human spirit, its resiliency and its ability to move toward healing and health when the obstacles that prevent growth are properly understood and gently removed.
What we live with, we learn. What we learn, we practice. What we practice, we become. And what we become has consequences. (Learning theory)
