I counsel from an integrated approach and biblical worldview (open to other religions too). I have skills in Story Informed Trauma Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, EMDR, Premarital and Play Therapy. I also have skills in working with trauma, PTSD, and marriage and couples issues. I have interests in Animal-assisted therapy and Animal-assisted play therapy. In counseling, I emphasize the therapeutic alliance that is built between the client and the counselor through: a warm unconditional positive regard (UPR), empathy, acceptance, encouragement, transparency, and empowering the client through the treatment process. I love helping others. You don't have to suffer in silence. I look forward to helping you be the best version of you.
