My approach to counseling is systemic, viewing the individual in context of the family. I seek to strengthen all types of families and individuals with an approach that combines a Christian worldview with effective research-based methods. People that are looking to be active in the change process will find a fit with my approach.I work with children, adolescents and their families to assist in healthy attachment to solve a variety of problems and reduce a variety of symptoms prevalent in our children today. I work also with adult individuals in the areas of depression and anxiety, life coaching, life stage transition, family of origin issues, adjustment and bereavement.I work with couples who are in crisis as well as those seeking to enhance their relationship utilizing the latest research on what makes relationships succeed. I also work to prepare couples who are planning to marry for a lifetime of success and fulfillment in marriage.
