Family Therapy Models
I received my Masters in Christian Marriage and Family Therapy from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
I interned and worked at a variety of locations, in both clinical and ministry contexts. I first interned at Converting Hearts Ministry where I counseled men struggling with various addictions, providing both individual and group therapy, along with counseling for their wives and other family members.
I worked as a counseling intern under the supervision of a personal mentor, Dr. Sam Williams Professor of Counseling and Fulp Chair of Biblical Counseling at Southeastern Seminary. I worked primarily with young boys and adolescents, and their families. In counseling, we addressed problems such as depression, social anxieties, behavioral problems, and autism spectrum disorder.
I also interned at Dr. Peter Van Dyck’s practice. My time here has been invaluable. It continued to equip me to be able to provide effective therapy for a range of psychiatric diagnoses, as well as problems of living that bring clients and their families to therapy looking for help and change. It gave me additional training in treatment planning, case management, and treatment termination.
I have worked part-time as a counselor at the Raleigh Rescue Mission for several years. I initially volunteered there for several years then made the transition to a staff position. I provide counseling in large group therapy setting, having sharpened my skills for this type of therapy when I was volunteering there. I work under the supervision of Chris Hill, a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist who is Director of Counseling at the Mission.
I enjoy serving in leadership at a local Celebrate Recovery, co-leading bible study, painting, fly fishing, and spending time with my fiance and my family.
