Because I believe true healing takes place in the context of relationships, I see therapy as an ideal place to sort out and work through the difficult places in our lives. As we pour onto the table the jumbled jigsaw of present problems and begin to turn the pieces over, we begin to make sense of the big picture. Sometimes life losses need to be appreciated and grieved; other times appropriate boundaries need to be drawn; anxieties and stresses need to be managed; relationships may need restoration or release; or new choices and decisions need to be made.
Knowing that most spiritual, emotional, and relationship issues have roots in the past, it is my desire to provide a safe environment to process the past, honestly look at the present, and make necessary changes for the future.
My bias is toward helping make marriage work, and my worldview is distinctly Christian. Though I do not expect my clients to embrace my values, I believe incorporating the spiritual element contributes toward greater therapeutic success and wholeness.
