About My Practice
I am a licensed counselor and marriage and family therapist with 34 years experience and am equally skilled in dealing with individuals and couples.
The problems I deal with most commonly are anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bipolar disorder, individual growth, midlife issues, relationship problems, anger management, conflict negotiation skills, divorce adjustment, blended families and parenting issues. I provide Christian counseling if requested. When working with couples I use John Gottman's research based model for marriage counseling coupled with key concepts of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
I use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to work effectively with each unique client. It describes 16 normal personality types in terms of strengths, weaknesses and communication style. It helps couples understand and accept their differences and improve their conflict negotiation and communication skills. It is equally useful for individuals to help them understand themselves.
I have provided a link on my website to the Jung Typology Test which is a free online version of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. I recommend that both individuals and couples complete the test online before the first session if they are interested and have the time.
