--------- Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Career Counseling Ft Myers
I specialize in Christian counseling in Ft Myers FL, and my counseling office is convenient to Cape Coral FL, Bonita Springs FL, Naples, FL, and Lee County FL. I received my Master's of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary.  Many of my clients are interested in working with a counselor that shares their faith, belief system, and values.  I provide counseling from a Christian perspective with a Biblical foundation. 
I believe the Bible is our foundation of truth, and psychology and mental health techniques and principles can help Christians heal. I teach techniques and strategies that are in line with Christian principles, and will help you become emotionally healthy.
I opened my Christian counseling office in Fort Myers in March of 2013, and previously had an office in Virginia for 10 years. Here are some of the issues that I have helped clients with through Christian counseling:
  • Isolation, withdrawing and loneliness
  • Self esteem and insecurity
  • Sadness and depression
  • Overanalyzing and overwhelmed
  • Perfectionism acceptance
  • Procrastination and goal setting
  • School issues, study habits and test anxiety
  • Singleness
  • Stress management
  • Communication and friendship
  • Anger management
  • Teens and adolescents
  • College students and young adults
  • Quit smoking
My specialties are career counseling, anger management, and counseling teens/adolescents and college students/young adults.
I also enjoy helping adults with career, anger management, stress management, quit smoking and anxiety issues. Additionally I help those with job stress, singleness, and other life transitions.  I specialize in helping those who struggle with stress, self-esteem, anxiety and depression.  If you are stressed about the economy, worried about your job, or looking for relief from your pain and wanting to find out God's purpose for your life, please give me a call at 239-243-8098 or email me at
I work together with many local pastors to serve their members with Christian counseling. Here is what some of them say about my Christian counseling:
In my work with adults struggling with career, relationship, or self esteem/depression/anxiety issues, I use a variety of counseling techniques, most often cognitive-behavioral techniques.  We talk often about thinking patterns and how our thinking affects our actions.  We practice identifying negative thoughts and replacing them with positive ones.  I often recommend books or workbooks that help clarify and reinforce coping skills and techniques addressed in counseling.  I ask most clients to complete assessment tools, including those that measure depression, anxiety, and anger levels, or career interest inventories or personality tests if appropriate. 
Most clients see results in 8-10 counseling sessions, however many choose to continue therapy for up to a year or more as they identify their strengths, make positive life changes, set boundaries, improve communication skills, and strengthen their organizational and decision-making skills. Counseling appointments are available on Fridays, with some evening hours Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, many of my clients come to my Fort Myers office for Christian counseling from Lee County FL, Naples FL, Cape Coral FL, and Bonita Springs, FL.
