I have worked with many couples dealing with relationship difficulties. Many times couples enter therapy thinking one or the other needs to get "fixed." I prefer to help couples understand the serious issues from both perspectives and help them to come together to fix the problem rather than each other. Couples can become a successful team and the work on the issues brings them closer together in relationship rather than allowing the differences to push them apart. My approach respects the individual differences and helps couples appreciate each other and grow in relationship.
I have both a B.A. degree in pastoral ministry and a Masters of Divinity degree from Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University. I have held many ministry positions in churches included pastoral positions. My own spiritual journey has enhanced my appreciation for using spiritual resources as an additional powerful asset to help work through life challenges. My approach in working with individuals is not to help them conform to my spiritual mold but help them discover their spiritual own spiritual foundations and draw wisdom and strength through experiencing these in a more powerful way. I believe we are all unique in our being and the expression of our spirituality can also be uniquely expressed in ways to assist us with well-being and development. An individual with spiritual sensitivities is not destined to remain stagnant.
