In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I was raised in a Christian home and taught to love the Lord and serve Him. I incorporate Biblical principles into the therapeutic process when applicable and when requested. I understand not everyone has this same viewpoint but I like to offer it for those who feel they may benefit from it.

What does a first session with you look like?

In the first session a history is gathered to help me better understand your needs and background. This will assist us in developing goals to work on in therapy so we can best address your current needs.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Many people today feel if they get therapy they are “crazy.” This could not be farther from the truth. Everyone has hard times in life and may need a little extra help processing through life struggles. Therapy is nothing to be ashamed of and many often find it truly helps them get to a better place in their lives.
