Do you prescribe medications?

How do you approach counseling?
Personality wise, I've got a pretty compettive spirit, and truly believe that together we can defeat these disorders and help you lead a meaningful life! Its my job to listen well, ask good questions and then provide you with the right direction, skills and motivation to help you move forward.
Psychologically, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) as a framework for counseling. CBT and ERP are what they call "evidence-based" and "gold-standard" treatments, because there are numerous studies which show them to be effective in treating anxiety and OCD. I have trained with the IOCDF (International OCD Foundation) on numerous occassions through my career and regularly consult with other anxiety and OCD professionals on cases.
My worldview is grounded in Christian faith, which reminds me that we are all human, no one is perfect and we all need help. I believe there is a God who loves us and desires a relationship with us. He has revealed himself most fully in scripture and through the person of Jesus Christ.
I work with clients of all walks of life and faith and integrate faith in counseling as desired by clients. No matter where you are in life, I would consider it a priveldge to help you in your journey.
