I am a Christian counselor with degrees in both clinical social work and psychology. My practice has been in Michigan since 1984. My style is direct, psychodynamic, solution focused. I work to resolve, reduce and alleviate the disruptive symptoms which bring clients into treatment. I typically work with adults and couples. You begin the therapeutic process by taking this first step to look for the right therapist to meet your needs. With our combined motivation and direction we can achieve your goals and objectives. It is empowering to achieve
personal growth and success through counseling. With life's transitions it is vital for us to focus on new directions and alternative paths. Together we can create a unique and healthier strategy to enhance or revitalize you. Let's develop your personal plan to increase your happiness and fulfillment today.
I have many colleagues available, that I know well and work with personally, to refer to here, when there are concerns or areas I am not personally expert in. This is extremely helpful to someone seeking therapy and not sure who to go to for help.
