The therapeutic stance I take in my practice is a collaborative Strength-Based Therapy focusing on setting individualized goals, highlighting your best qualities and building on your strengths to build resilience. Your treatment plan will be tailored to your unique life circumstances and challenges. I also provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that helps you become more aware of negative or inaccurate thinking so you can view those life challenges more clearly and respond more effectively to stressful situations. I also provide Christian Based Therapy following Biblical truths and principals allowing God to shine His light on specific problem areas that may have been keeping you from experiencing true joy and peace in your life.
