I provide counseling from a Christian perspective to couples, individuals, and families. My goal is to utilize biblical principles to help clients overcome marital struggles, communication and blended family issues, and improve parenting skills.
My specialty is working with couples to help them rediscover the love and harmony they had at first. Most couples who come in for marriage counseling have lost focus on what Scripture tells us about how and husband and wife are supposed to relate to one another. Typically, the wife becomes disrespectful toward the husband when she feels her needs are not met. This disrespect causes the husband to distance himself or become harsh with his wife. The wife’s usual response to his pulling away is to be even more disrespectful and the two become caught up in a negative feedback loop from which they can’t seem to escape. Dr. Emerson Eggerichs calls ths the “Crazy Cycle” (in his book, LOVE AND RESPECT) and it truly seems that this crazy cycle is indeed at the heart of most of the “issues” that bring couples in for counseling. The good news is that there is a way out that is clearly spelled out in Scripture and implementing these principles almost always produces positive results relatively quickly.
I also work with individuals suffering from anxiety and depression. Please visit my website for additional information at: scvfamilycounseling.com
I provide counseling from a Christian perspective for couples, individuals, and families. Many of the couples who come to me are tryng to recapture the feelings they had at first and are surprised at how badly they actually treat each other. Biblical principles centering on Love and Respect are almost always effective in helping couples get their marriage back on track in a short period of time.
Most couples who come in for counseling have lost focus on what Scripture tells us regarding how a husband and wife should relate to each other. The wives are often feeling very unloved and in response, they treat their husbands with disrespect. The husbands, feeling this disrespect, often distance themselves or become harsh with their wives, which only intensifies the negativity. This damaging style of relating is clearly explained in the book I usually utilize in session (LOVE AND RESPECT by Emerson Eggerichs). The “Crazy Cycle” as he calls it, is at the heart of virutally all marriage relationship difficulties. After over twenty years of working with couples who love each other, but struggle to find peace and romance, I’ve concluded that Dr. Eggerichs is right and I’ve seen amazing results in therapy when couples come to understand and master the Crazy Cycle.
I also provide guidance when it comes to parenting issues, as kids who aren’t behaving well can add stress to an already difficult relationship. Surprisingly, many of my Christian couples are dealing with blended family issues and that can be very tricky indeed. There are definitely better methods available to navigate these often treacherous waters that can bring much more harmony to the home. Please visit my website for more information at:
