She works with children age 5 and up using a variety of play therapy techniques and family counseling. In general, she is eclectic and uses the therapy approach that is most suited for the individual psychologically, along with spiritually. This may include family systems, cognitive/behavioral, Gestalt, psychodynamic, spiritual systems, solution based, or other techniques. The goal is to integrate spiritual principles within all therapy approaches. However, she does not use any therapy techniques that are contrary to the Word of God or His leading in an individual's life.
