My professional experience with adults includes: • treating clinical concerns such as anxiety, social anxiety, depression, and other clinical concerns. • relationships, self-image, self-esteem, and self-efficacy • self-harm behaviors and impulse control • anger management and stress management My therapeutic approach often incorporates homework such as reading specific scripture or Christian literature, journal writing and practice of specific CBT and DBT strategies outside the clinical setting, at home, and in the community, all of which supports your growth and progress. My goal is for your growth to be internal as you move towards defining or redefining your relationship with Christ.
