  • I have been trained in therapy techniques for children, adolescents and adults. I work with children age 4 and up using family counseling, cognitive behavior therapy. In general, I am eclectic and use the therapy approach that is most suited for the individual psychologically and spiritually. This may include family systems, marital therapy, cognitive/behavioral, spiritual systems or other techniques. The goal is to integrate spiritual principles within all therapy approaches. However, I do not use any therapy techniques that are contrary to the Word of God or His leading in any individual life.
