My Philosophy and My Foundation
"I am not ashamed of the gospel". This is what the apostle Paul said in Romans 1:16. And neither am I. The gospel means "good news" and that is exactly what I want to share with you! Though you will not be "preached to" or "judged", I believe that much of the problems with families have to do with sin. Sin is that thing we all do that is not what God wants us to do. God is our Creator and knows us better than we know ourselves. As our Creator, He knows what is best for us.
I have been trained in basic and advanced counseling skills and have over twenty-five years experience counseling children and their families. I am also a trained Christian Life Coach. Because of my experience both professionally and personally, I choose to use Biblically-based solutions to help you and your family heal and lead a life of abundance. The way God intended you to live. Through this model, you will learn how to be a better parent, spouse, family member, co-worker, and friend.
I also believe strongly in the model of play therapy for young children. Play is their natural language and so I use the evidenced-based intervention of play therapy to work with your child individually.
No matter what service you choose, you will be expected to be a part of the process. You may be given homework and you will be challenged to look at your own strengths and weaknesses as a parent. You will be given new skills and encouragement to make changes to help you and your family. Though this model is not for everyone, I believe it is the only way to truly become healthy and happy individuals and families. No matter who you are, if you are willing to participate in this model of therapy or coaching, I welcome you!
