Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Christ-centered marriage and family therapist with 15 years of experience working with adults, children, and adolescents, in individual, marital and family work. I provide trauma resolution and EMDR for adults and children. I lived overseas for six years and have extensive experience working with missionaries in re-entry, as well as pastors and people in ministry.

I work from a strengths-based paradigm, looking not just for the problem or pathology, but also for the strengths in a person’s life, and building upon that. I love to see a person grow to greater wholeness and greater awareness of his or her value, and to move into living life more fully.

Some specific areas I work with: Children and families in adoption; Children of divorce; Abuse and trauma recovery; Life Transitions; anxiety, depression and assertiveness training; Adult children of alcoholics; daily life struggles.
