Provides online therapy
I've been guiding individuals and couples in their journey to resolve past hurt, pain and trauma since 2005. Through the years, I've grabbed every training possible so that I have as many tools in my tool box as possible. My approach to therapy is to meet the person or couple where they are in their pain. I am a receptive listener. I apply many of the trauma techniques I have learned over the years to even the simplest of problems for clients. There are always bottom issues that need addressing that are often hidden from view. In other words, the obvious problem may not really be the client's problem. Many times under the behavior there are unprocessed emotions and beliefs that are driving the dysfunctional behaviors. Unless you get to the bottom core issues, the behaviors will not change. It has also been my experience that many couples are actually traumatized by each other because they've had so many past painful learning experiences trying to navigate their marriage relationship. For this reason I view many couples counseling situations as trauma resolution. The Gottman tools are so effective to help give couples new ways to see each other so they are not causing further wounding. My Christian principles give me a strong anchor to lean on to help couples reach the truth of their situations.
