Therapy Approaches

I offer a variety of therapy approaches based on the needs of the client. One specific approach may not meet the needs of the individual or couple. I use an integrative approach to be able to provide a more comprehensive counseling experience for clients. As a Christian therapist, I also operate with a neurotheology approach with clients. This is focus on the connection between the brain and spirituality.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR Therapy

EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. By reprocessing disturbing events from the past, clients are able to experience relief from symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

ACT is a form of Cognitive Behavior Therapy that helps clients learn to Accept reactions and be present, Choose a valued direction and Take action. ACT is a versatile therapeutic approach for anxiety, depression, grief, relationship problems, and more.

Internal Family Systems

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an approach that identifies and addresses multiple parts within each person. It focuses on healing the wounded parts and restoring mental balance and harmony by changing the dynamics that create conflict among the sub-personalities and the Self.

Emotion Focused Therapy

Emotion-focused therapy (EFT) is used to improve attachment and bonding in relationships. It is used with couples, and has also been adapted for use with families and individuals. EFT helps couples and family members form a more secure emotional bond, resulting in stronger relationships and improved communication.

Gottman Method Marriage

Gottman Marriage therapy uses assessments and interventions that are designed to help couples strengthen their relationships in three primary areas: friendship, conflict management, and creation of shared meaning. Couples learn how to have positive interactions, repair past hurts, and increase connection.


In addition to in office therapy sessions, some clients enjoy appointments in the privacy of their own homes via teletherapy. Sessions can be conducted over the phone or in a virtual face to face connection, using a computer, tablet or smartphone.
