You will find that I am a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist. You will find that I am very approachable and enjoy a good laugh. Frankly I think I am funny and often my patients agree with me. I find that humor in sessions is very helpful in removing the stress that necessarily ebbs and flows in therapy sessions. My treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. I believe that the therapy session is not the "magic hour" and thus I teach people about the nature of change.
Focus: Cutting edge brain science in sorting out and changing deceptive messages one emotionally feels and believes. This serves well to answer the song lyric: How can it be wrong when it feels so right? Answer: Undetected and unchallenged emotionally charged false beliefs. My therapy can sort this out.
With my extensive training in psychology, theology and brain science I am uniquely able to provide an interdisciplinary range of therapy to assist my patients. As agreeable I incorporate explanations about how brain science is consistent with the Bible. I also provide Biblical direction and homework.
