I believe that faith and psychology do mix! God calls people of faith to be healthy and functional to the best of their ability, and we often need help to achieve this. I possess a solid Christian faith and enjoy incorporating scripture and spiritual principles into treatment when clients invite it. As both a long-time Christian and a trained mental health clinician, I can help identify physiologically-based mental health issues, so we can utilize practical tools and spiritual strength to overcome them.
Severe Anxiety Disorders
Anxiety appears in a variety of forms and different degrees of severity. I specialize in treating mild to severe anxiety disorders including Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Phobia and others, often with simultaneous depression. Using research-based Behavioral and Cognitive Behavioral treatment methods, I will formulate a plan to help you think differently about anxiety, face it and manage it.
Family Therapy is a unique and effective way to allow each family member to have a voice and be part of the solution. With each family member present, dysfunctional family dynamics can quickly be uncovered and addressed. All family members are affected by family struggles and play a role in them. When working with families, I become energized by helping multiple people move toward health at the same time!
Phase of Life Transition
Moving from one phase of life to another can be confusing and challenging, but can also be very rewarding when done effectively. Whether transitioning to adulthood, marriage, parenthood or empty nest years, I can help walk you through values, choices and behaviors to establish a satisfying shift.
