I believe that we become who we are because of where we have been, meaning that as individuals, we have been sculpted by a combination of personal and environmental factors.  Every individual’s life has meaning, purpose, and unique challenges that make us into who we ultimately become, if we allow God to grow us into our full potential. I work with children, adolescents and young adults and enjoy being a part of these quite different phases of life.

I feel most inspired by the children I have worked with in foster care throughout Western NC and Southwest VA, as well as the children I met while leading grief groups at the WARM Place grief center in Fort Worth TX. I have been forever impacted by the young men and women that I met at Baylor Rehab Institute in Dallas TX who were coping from life altering spinal cord injuries.

My theoretical orientation is heavily grounded in Christian cognitive based techniques integrated with the theories and ideas of Michael White, the founder of narrative therapy. I, like Michael White, believe in the power of externalizing problems pertaining to one’s life. I also believe in the power of re-authoring one’s story by re-telling the story in ways that produce meaning and value for the individual. I believe that play is the language of children and use play and expressive arts to help them best express their wonders, worries, and hopes about life.
