My Approach to Therapy

I am a clinical psychologist licensed by the State of Florida. My practice focuses on individual and marital therapy. From my offices at the Marriage and Family Enrichment Center in Tampa, I offer a variety of appointment times each week.

Committed To A Christian Perspective

My work in therapy is based on the application of principles from the Bible and the field of psychology. I use the truths in Scripture and the truths in psychology to help clients bring about change in their individual lives and relationships. Through therapy, clients can gain understanding in emotional expression, thinking and behavior.

My goal is to guide persons toward emotional and relational health by relying on my personal faith in God, the truths in the Bible and the science of psychology.

I'm an active, directive, cognitive-behavioral therapist. I develop a plan of action for my clients and help them carry it out with homework assignments.

I can manage all aspects of a client's therapy and counseling needs, including psychiatric referral for medication when indicated.

A Depth of Professional Training and Experience

I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. I also hold the Master of Arts degree in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas.

Beginning in 1982 at the Minirth-Meier Inpatient Clinic in Garland, Texas, I have trained in a number of inpatient hospitals and outpatient counseling centers.

I conducted outpatient individual, marital and group therapy at the Milwaukee Clinic of the Clackamas County Mental Health System in Milwaukee, Oregon.

I completed a one year full-time psychology internship at Philhaven Hospital, a private psychiatric hospital in Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania. During this intensive year of training, I provided treatment for individuals experiencing a broad range of psychological disorders. At Philhaven, I performed both outpatient and inpatient individual, marital, family and group therapy.

I have been in private practice in Tampa since 1986.
