I do not consider myself the average therapist because I do not sit around and say "Hmm, tell me more". Instead, I take a very assertive style and want to make changes in your life as quickly and effectively as possible . Instead, I take a very assertive style and want to make changes in your life as quickly and effectively as possible. You need to want to make changes in your life before I can truly help you. I usually give homework assignments for completion. You see me for 45 min. to 1 hour, but the majority of the work is done outside of the session with the techniques and tools we discuss during our sessions. I seek to walk alongside individuals and couples, showing hope and direction for changed lives which enables me to be a benefit to you during your time of need.
Whether you are seeking individual counseling, trying to improve a relationship via couples counseling, working out family issues my first goal is to help you recognize yourself and how you can improve.
I am a Christian counselor which means I use God and faith to help you heal, progress and find peace. I will not force you to believe what I believe, but I do want you to know where I come from.

I recognize the process is not easy and sometimes it's just plain difficult. I promise to do my best to guide you through this journey that will improve your life and relationships with yourself, others and God.
