                                       About My Practice
   I am a licensed counselor and marriage and family therapist with 34 years       experience and am equally skilled in dealing with individuals and couples. 
  The problems I deal with most commonly are anxiety, depression, panic    attacks, bipolar disorder, individual growth, midlife issues, relationship    problems, anger management, conflict negotiation skills, divorce    adjustment, blended families and parenting issues. I provide Christian         counseling if requested. When working with couples I use John Gottman's     research based model for marriage counseling coupled with key concepts        of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

    I use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to work effectively with each     unique client. It describes 16 normal personality types in terms of     strengths, weaknesses and communication style. It helps couples     understand and accept their differences and improve their conflict     negotiation and communication skills. It is equally useful for     individuals to help them understand themselves.

    I have provided a link on my website to the Jung Typology Test     which is a free online version of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. I     recommend that both individuals and couples complete the test     online before the first session if they are interested and have the     time.
