Northwest Christian Counseling Associates
I offer counseling services to individuals, couples and families. I have training in Gottman Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Research shows these are the most successful therapies for couples. Emotionally Focused Therapy helps to build a secure bond. From this foundation most couples are able to solve any of their problems without further treatment. Gottman tools are extremely helpful once this foundation is laid and for specific issues.
I have experience and special training for working with children and adolescents with anxiety, depression, behavior issues, ADHD, PTSD and OCD among other issues. Parenting strategies are essential and are offered as I work with you and your child. I use primarily Cognitive Behavior Therapy, but also pull in strategies from Aggression Replacement Training, Motivational Interviewing, Compassion-Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Play Therapy and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. Where appropriate I may also use Emotionally Focused Therapy for relationship issues with kids and their family members.
Sessions typically last an hour. Couples sessions are often longer--particularly with Emotionally Focused Therapy. I love what I do and the people that I meet! I look forward to meeting you!
