“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls your life.” Ashkay Dubey


Asking for help is a sign of strength

If you are looking for help with dealing with sexual abuse and other forms of trauma as well as anxiety and depression, you are in a healthy place. It takes courage to ask for help. Admitting you can’t do everything on your own is the first step in your journey toward healing and growth.

The way in which we cope in the world is greatly influenced by the thoughts that we have about ourselves.

I use a variety of approaches and strategies to address my clients’ unique needs. Approaches and strategies vary depending upon the needs of my client; however, my foundation and application of biblical principles remains the same.

Some of the approaches that I use include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy and Solution Focused Strategies.

The goals that you have for yourself are important. You and I will develop a treatment plan to fully address your issues. The treatment plan that we develop as a team will identify problem areas and strategies to work on the problem.


“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

The First Appointment

A few things happen during the first appointment. To help you start to feel comfortable, we will talk for a few minutes about how you are feeling and your therapy goals. One important document that needs to be read and signed is called The Informed Consent. This is a contract between the counselor and client that includes the agreement to participate in counseling, counseling and cancellation fees, confidentiality procedures, etc.

You will also read and sign authorizations. When you sign these authorizations, you give me permission to interact with your insurance company/EAP and to call someone if you need medical care. This establishes the professional side of our counseling partnership.

The last form to complete is The Initial Intake Interview Form. On this form, you will answer questions about your personal, family, medical, and mental health history. During the intake interview and for the next few sessions, we will discuss your answers so that I can effectively assist you in meeting your therapy goals.
