In individual therapy, I help you identify the source of your current pain; then over time, implement effective treatment solutions; and ultimately resolve the issues that might be hindering you in your marriage, family, friendships or career. Individual therapy provides a safe environment in which to face childhood wounds associated with abuse, alcoholism, incest, codependency, compulsive behavior or sexual identity issues. You’ll find out you’re not alone when dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, intimacy, trust, self-esteem, loneliness, loss or grief. Ultimately, individual therapy provides an environment in which you can reclaim and live a meaningful, purposeful life.
EMDR (treatment for trauma)
You’ll find out you’re not alone… you can reclaim and live a meaningful, purposeful life.
As a couple, you may be seeking help for something as simple as communicating and connecting effectively with each other. Or, you may be going through a crisis or stressful time such as pregnancy, relocation, mid-life crisis, career redirection, or a death in the family.
As much as they want to, friends or relatives may not be able to help because they’re biased in favor of or against one of you; or they just may be too close to the situation. In a non-biased environment, couples therapy can help each of you address and work through issues that just don’t seem to be getting better on their own. Ultimately, you’ll find a fair and safe environment in which to enhance, rebuild or repair your relationship; or to make an intelligent, well-thought-out decision to move on separately.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (Couples Therapy)
As much as they want to, friends or relatives may not be able to help.
Women’s Support Group
Rooted Heart Ministry is a weekly class and support group for women of all ages. In it, women learn how relationships are damaged (often in childhood), how the deepest injuries can be healed, how distorted views of self and of God can be repaired. Women learn how to sort out the lies they’ve believed about themselves, and realize their value to God and to others. In short, they learn the possibilities of true connection. Teaching the class and leading this group has been my passion for more than 20 years.
