Licensed Clinical Psychologist in private practice since 1980.
I have been married since 1972 and have four grown children and six grandsons, so far. About half of my practice is with marital and family problems; the remainder mostly with individual adults. I have a good working relationship with a number of local pastors and happily cooperate in coordinating care of their parishioners with the consent of my clients. I also do clinical psychological evaluations for a variety of personal, vocational, and court-related needs.
I have extensive training and experience working with severe personality disorders, addictions, and codependency. My graduate degrees are from Covenant Theological Seminary (Biblical Studies) and Southern Illinois University (Clinical Psychology). A number of insurance companies will cover most or part of my fees. I also work with a limited number of clients who need a sliding scale.
Licensed Professional Counselor since 2004.
I am originally from California where I taught at a private elementary school for 13 years. In 1999 I graduated with a Master’s Degree in counseling from Covenant Theological Seminary. Since then I have worked with a diverse group of adults and children in private practice. In particular, I have worked extensively with addiction and codependency issues, behavioral problems in children, victims of sexual abuse and a variety of other issues as they affect women and girls.
I also practice in Alton, Illinois at River’s Edge Christian Counseling. I am an in-network provider for several insurance companies. My husband and I love our home and church community, and enjoy helping with our granddaughter and an aging mother.
Licensed Professional Counselor since 2005.
My Master’s degree in counseling is from Denver Theological Seminary in Colorado. I am a preferred provider with several insurance companies. In addition to my work as a public high school guidance counselor, I see several private clients.
I often work with adolescents and their families, but I also do marital counseling and have substantial working with sexual addiction, depression, and anger problems. My wife and I delight in the raising of our four children, who are the great blessings of our lives.
