My work is solution focused. I do believe our past family experiences are important. What we learned in our family is very much related to how we do life today. But Solution focus puts the emphasis on discovering what works in the here and now and finding ways to do more of it. So, if you feel stuck in a problem, changing your focus to the solution may be the beginning of productive path of growth and change.

I am skilled in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Family Systems. I’ve completed Level Two in Gottman Method Couples Therapy training.

This is a second career for me after 20 years in the business world. I enjoyed business but I decided I wanted something more in the second half of life. As it turned out, my experience in the challenges and pressures of business have been useful for clients.

Why I Became a Professional Christian Therapist

I know was blessed that as a Believer in my 40s to be able to take the time to discover a new career. I got to integrate my spiritual beliefs from the beginning into the search. As a result, I was able to ask the Lord to be a guiding part of those career decisions throughout. That’s not always possible when you pick a path right out of school as I had.
