About Me

I am a Christian Licensed Professional Counselor and have a wide variety of experience counseling first as a Teacher and then as a Counselor. I was a teacher for 20 years,and understand students and parents, and the difficulties/adjustments they face. I love kids and enjoy counseling them and their parents. I have lots of experience with troubled kids, DCS kids, parent/child relationships, family counseling, ADHD, and adjustment issues, such as divorce, new school, etc. I have taught in the USA, Africa, South Korea, Dominican Republic, and online; so I have lots of cross-cultural experience, and love learning about new cultures and cultural diverse issues. As a counselor for 10 years, I have counseled clients from the USA, including different people groups such as Christians and nonChristians, Muslims, LGBT, African American, Native American, African, Chinese and Middle Eastern clients, using translators when needed. I am a very accepting person, and especially interested in helping different people groups with adjustment/life changes issues.

As a Christian counselor, I love to help people understand God's purposes and teachings in the Bible. I studied the Bible at Multnomah Seminary in Portland, Oregon, and have a good understanding of Biblical principles and how to apply them to our lives. As a missionary in Africa and Dominican Republic, I have had lots of experience teaching the Bible and helping Christians to understand and change their lives with God's power. I am accepting of all Christian faiths, and seek to help clients to identify their problems and overcome them.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is my number one counseling approach. It is an excellent and well-known therapy for Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). However, it is also excellent for anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and any bad memories. Also, it is a great relaxation method that I will teach you to do at home. I have had many clients, children and adults successfully overcome anxiety, traumatic flashbacks and dreams, pulling out hair, smoking and depression by using EMDR. Also, depending on the needs of the client, I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) in helping clients to reach their treatment goals. Counseling is the process of coming along side a person and helping them to identify what changes they would like to make in their life and developing strategies together to achieve their goals. I look forward to getting to know you, and helping you to reach your treatment goals.
