A bit about my approach to therapy

My approach is first from the perspective that every human is made in the Image of God and is worthy of honor and respect because of that. Every interaction with clients should make them feel honored and respected. I approach counseling as not something I do TO clients, but something that I do WITH clients. Every client has the right to self determination.

What you can expect from our first session

Hope and Help. From the very first session, I work hard with each client so that I work myself out of a job with them. I strive to get every client to the point that they say, "I'll take it from here."
