Though I meet with clients at First Christian Church in the West Ashley area of Charleston, SC, I am not affiliated with the church in any way. First Christian is approximately 0.3 miles from the intersection of Sam Rittenberg Boulevard and Orange Grove Road.
First Christian Church
1293 Orange Grove Road
Charleston, SC 29407
While offering services to meet a variety of needs, the primary focus of my practice includes:
Individual, relationship, premarital, marriage, and family counseling
Personal struggles with depression, anxiety, and self-esteem
Identity, life transition, and spiritual concerns
Grief and loss
The special needs of clergy and their families
Consultation and training for businesses and churches (see "Additional Services")
Clients who are seeking to include a spiritual or faith-based dimension in their counseling (sometimes referred to as Christian counseling or pastoral counseling), will receive support for their Judeo-Christian spiritual values, but I always respect my clients' beliefs and preferences, and their desire to include or not include spirituality as a dimension of their counseling.
I provide caring and confidential therapeutic counseling, with sound professional training and more than 23 years experience in the Charleston, SC area. I have completed Level 3 (of 4) in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, the leading research-based approach to assist couples in building positive relationships. For those desiring Christian counseling, I am uniquely trained to offer therapy incorporating sound psychotherapy with a spiritual dimension.
