Team Process and Journey
Congratulations! You have exercised courage to do one of the scariest things you have ever done or you may be accustomed to this process. Whatever the case, I applaud your initiative. I will commit myself to being fully with you. The progress you make is determined by your investment and will probably take longer than you thought. Each step builds hope.
Atmosphere of Acceptance and Security
In order to make this journey as effective as possible, I create an atmosphere in which I will honor your autonomy to make your own choices. You are created with inherent worth, period! I will listen to your story without judgment and “get you”. You, your efforts, and your expressed emotional state will always receive affirmation. In addition, you will experience me as real, honest, and authentic.
Born to a hard working couple, I grew up in a small Virginia town. After losing my dad at 12 and experiencing a turbulent adolescence, I found Christ and felt called into ministry. I completed a Bachelors and Master of Divinity program at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. I, my wife, and a team started a new church in NYC that continued for six years until I stepped down from leadership. That began a ping-pong recovery journey lasting 2 decades. We experienced a chaotic life until getting appropriate help. This arduous journey created a passion to give back and a platform of healing for those experiencing their own corner of hell.
My former training, experience, and 37 + years of marriage combined with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy and certificate in Christian Sex Therapy prepared me for working with a wide range of issues. I began working with individuals, couples, and groups providing counseling for premarital, marital conflict resolution, intimacy issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, affair recovery, family of origin healing, sexual addiction recovery, and spiritual formation.
Frame of Reference for Doing Therapy
My professional licenses include Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Professional Counselor (LPC), I am a fully certified CSAT sex addiction therapist, CST certified Christian sex therapist, and pursuing certification as an emotionally focused therapist. I am also an ordained minister.
I view individuals in the context of their family of origin,am a passionate believer in “attachment theory” (how we bond), and work from a Judeo-Christian worldview. These guide my work with all my clients. As God is the perfect model of attachment, there is shared fellowship, mutual love and respect, and positive accountability. This is the foundation for the secure and safe atmosphere I facilitate in session. I look forward to joining you on your journey. Are you ready to take the first step?
