My Approach to Counseling


When you come to counseling, I will take time to understand your situation and how it is affecting you. Together, we will set goals.


      From session to session, I will ask questions that are intended to help you gain insight or make

      changes. Many of the questions will highlight your strengths and how to use those resources to

      achieve your goals. I may share my observations about your life and problems or teach you how

      to use a particular skill. If you come as a couple or family, everyone will participate. Occasionally,

      I may meet separately with the individuals in a couple or family.


My primary approach to counseling is Solution-focused Brief Therapy. Nevertheless, I also use appropriate methods from Cognitive, Behavioral, Narrative, Family Systems, and other therapy models. You will find me to be “faith-friendly.” Without imposing religious beliefs, the faith and spiritual resources of clients are integrated with therapeutic methods from behavioral sciences.


      Please call me to discuss the next steps you can take to make your life all you want it to be.
