As seen on a Sussex Directories Inc siteAbout Me and My Practice

Are you looking for a therapist for couples counseling or for a Christian teen therapist in Elk Grove? I have been working with couples and teens for about a decade (in clinical, university, and church settings). I absolutely LOVE the journey of walking alongside couples and teens as they explore their potential and how to fulfill that potential. Whether the focus is depression, anxiety, sexuality, drugs/alcohol, balancing work/school, entering early adulthood, or other items, we’ll dive into these discussions together and work on a solution.

I offer counseling that is rooted in a Christian worldview, though those not seeking this approach receive my utmost respect and sensitivity to their worldview. As a Christian counselor, I utilize a holistic approach to healing, drawing from my experiences with the Holy Spirit, while implementing tools that are most beneficial to the client. A variety of approaches have influenced my counseling style and use of tools: Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Solution-focused Therapy. I enjoy working with individuals using a Christian framework, which is how I received much of my training.
