About Me:

Joy. Peace. Success. Healthy, happy relationships. It takes guts to say to someone, “Could you help me get there?” In combining my background in biblical counseling with my work as a therapist, my goal in therapy is to draw out the heart, build hope, facilitate open, safe communication, and help provide practical, faith building, and real life tools for relational, emotional, mental, and spiritual change.

I am a doctor of marriage and family therapy, a certified sex therapist, and a certified chemical dependency counselor. Before becoming a therapist, I have had the joy of providing biblical counseling with couples, families, and individuals for the last 28 years. In therapy with married couples, I have worked with those who have wanted to renew the fire in their love life and sexual relationship as well as with others who are no longer communicating or have been on the brink of divorce. I have counseled couples that have experienced affairs, issues with intimacy, and the effects of pornography. I have also worked with couples that have had difficulties in their sexual relationship, such as low desire and arousal, erectile dysfunction, vaginal pain, premature ejaculation, and orgasmic dysfunction. 

I have provided parent education for over 20 years in the community. In therapy, I have counseled parents on how to build a rewarding, close relationship with their children while maintaining clear boundaries. I have worked with children who have challenges with attention, impulse control, and anger as well as with adolescents who have challenges with depression, self-harm, eating disorders, anxiety, drugs and alcohol, and relationships. I have counseled individual men and women who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, eating disorders, sexual abuse, and childhood and intimate partner violence.

I am also a certified counselor for Chemical Dependency. I have provided therapy for individuals and couples throughout the process of recovery.

Working through issues like these and others with couples, families, and individuals has given me a great respect and admiration for the amazing, resilient people I have had the privilege of helping.
