I've assisted all ages and genders with a broad variety of concerns. I have also worked as a Mediator, Coach, Professional Expert in Court, Court Ordered Divorce Assistant, and Military & Family Life Consultant ( MFLC) accepting stations with all the branches of the Armed Forces in the USA and overseas.
My professional services are provided face-to-face in Chinook and Havre, Montana. I welcome Distance Counseling and am a Certified Distance Counselor. (Distance Counseling is defined as any modality or form of communication using the internet or phone.) I regularly use phone, SKYPE or Vchat, as well as new programs as they are developed. Through long-distance therapy I provide the opportunity for people to receive the help they need in the convenience of their own environment.
Since I know that each of us has their own strengths and weakness to resolve conflict, I use an Integrative Approach to therapy. Each client is treated at their own level and pace of understanding to help themselves; each couple or family is given the opportunity to learn the Tools of Communication at a comfortable speed. For example, if an individual is suffering a traumatic loss, he or she will not be "pushed" through any theory of "Steps to Recover from Loss" - there is no one, right way to grieve; there is no one, right way to heal a damaged relationship. The goals for a healthier, more fulfilling life are the same, but the road there is crafted with Clinical Skills which will work best for you.
