"Talk" therapy works best when client & therapist act in a partnership as mutual "experts". My areas of expertise include trauma/abuse survivors, depression, suicide, grief, and anxiety. I am a therapist who can integrate client-problem-issues with spiritual issues out of personal histories...your choice to address! I try to fit the type of therapy to the person's problem rather than follow any one school or tradition. We humans are physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual beings. With me, clients explore these aspects of self. I am not able to work with clients who need emergency-type, frequent-contact.
Both clinical and life experiences have enabled me to coach clients with difficult families &/or children. I have worked with family members where alcoholism and substance-abuse deprive spouses &/or their children of nurture & safety. I have skills to help families where autism, AD(H)D, or Learning Disabilities exist.
Empathy is my art-ability to understand & guide my client's journey through pain/loss... God raised a man from the dead. The "mummy" appeared at grave's opening. God said, "Loose him!" My role is to help peel away my client's grave-clothes...separating True vs. False Self.
