The common therapeutic styles I use, as they are integrated with the truth of His Word, are cognitive behavioral therapy, gestalt therapy, and emotionally focused therapy. In connection with my counseling, I also use my personal experience with dysfunctional families, divorce, and depression/anxiety to help individuals and couples discover how their past influences their present, and how to develop the courage to change. Healing is a process and not an event. It is a journey and not simply a destination. There is a process to how you became who you are and there is a process to how you can become who God wants you to be. My goal is to be an agent of that change as I seek to be down to earth, real, and accepting of where you are to encourage you in becoming who you can be.
Although being a Christian is not a requirement for my counseling services, it may be helpful to understand that the foundation of my counseling approach is based on the supernatural love of God, as it has been revealed to us through His Word (The Bible). Through His Word, as it’s been handed down to us from generation to generation over thousands of years, we learn of our need for Him, His great love for us, specifically through the sacrifice and salvation of His son, Jesus Christ, and the appreciation we can show Him by how we then live.
