About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, specializing in individual psychotherapy, couples and family counseling, and academic evaluations. I maintain a practice in Madison, Alabama

With eighteen years experience in pastoral counseling and nineteen years as a clinical therapist, I have two masters degrees, and have completed all but dissertation for a doctorate in clinical psychology.  I am currently in private practice, with a focus on mood disorders, anxiety disorders, marital and family issues and divorce therapy.  As a separate practice, I also do divorce mediation.

I am a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist.  My treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. I incorporate a blend of conventional and alternative approaches, drawing upon a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. With sensitivity and compassion, I work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals.
