About

I have 35+ years experience working in the field of mental health. I am a Licensed Psychologist. I provide in office sessions and online video sessions. I treat most conditions. However, I have a passion for working with repairing and strengthening marriage and family relationships as well as treating anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, OCD, and PTSD. Earlier in my life I suffered from Panic Attacks and OCD and having gone through treatment myself I learned what was working and what was not working and have an affinity toward those who are struggling with debilitating anxiety in its various forms and types of anxiety disorders. I also specialize in working with , Military Veterans, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder. My treatment approaches draw from a variety of interventions including: Behavioral Approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Therapy,Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), EFT, EMDR, Energy Psychology (within a Christian emphasis), Biofeedback, Family Systems, Communication and Conflict Resolution Training, Relaxation Training, Mindfulness, and Psychodynamic approaches.

My standard charge for services is $100 per session (60 minutes). I am an in network provider for Cigna, United Behavioral Health, Optum, Medicare, and Tricare. Whether you use insurance or not I strive to keep payments affordable. In addition to using insurance and or paying through cash or credit card, I offer through Advance Care (a program similar to Care Credit) no interest or low interest financing for services provided. I provide both in office and Online Video sessions (which is particularly useful for individuals struggling with debilitating anxiety or physical condition) which prevents them from traveling or leaving their residence.

I address individual and relational patterns that affect the health of body, mind, soul, and spirit. I believe too many times we overuse pharmaceuticals to treat mental conditions when other approaches can be be used without dangerous side effects.

I am a Christian and it is the core value within my life. I have a faith perspective that is inclusive toward all rather than exclusive of any. Your relationship with God is between you and God rather than any particular Church. I will respect your individual spiritual beliefs.

My Christian Faith and My Professional Practice

I accepted Christ at the age of 21 while attending a Campus Crusade for Christ retreat in Fresno California. It has made all of the difference in my life. Before that Scripture was just words and rules to try to follow, after that, I realized that it is a personal relationship and that I could invite Christ into my life and be empowered through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. I accept other people's spiritual practices; however, I often tell people from different persuasions that in my personal life I follow a Jewish Carpenter, and that Jesus is my portal leading to an awakened, empowered, and positively lived life. I am non denominational, although over the years I have attended, Catholic, Baptist, Nazarene, and a variety of non-denominational churches. I believe in a Triune God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). I believe that Christ came into the world, lived, died on the cross, and resurrected for us to be reconnected to God. I believe that Christ died for our sins and through his death and resurrection and inviting him into our lives we are given the free gift of salvation. I believe in the ongoing presence of the Holy Spirit who guides us and empowers us to lead the Christian life. It is a journey, not without its ups and downs, but the promise that God is always with us even though sometimes we lose our way.
