As a Pastoral Medical Therapist, the majority of my services are not covered by insurance.  My clients become members of a private health association called the Pastoral Medical Association International so they may choose the very best care they desire.  Please click the link below to learn more and become a member prior to your appointment to assure you receive the most care for your time without the bulky paperwork.



Below are ways I can help:

What is AEP?  Spiritually speaking, AEP is the active participation in prayer, anointing, and perspective changing to elicit the client’s desired response from their own soul while actively seeking God’s blessing.

Scientifically speaking, AEP is an essential oil anointed prayerful conversation in which the facilitator uses brain education, humorous stories, and prayerful anointing of essential oils while collaborating with the receiver to elicit the receivers desired outcome from the limbic system of the brain while connecting with Our Divine Creator.

AEP clears the client's identified problematic emotion, thought or behavior in typically 1 to 3 sessions.  Most often only one session is required for any one identified problem as long as no diagnosed personality disorder is present.

***The participation in session results in lasting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual stability for sound appropriate emotional response to previously problematic thoughts, emotions, or behaviors.

AEP has been useful in resolving the following issues:

  • Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
  • Nightmares/Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks 
  • Grief
  • Abuse
  • Low Self-esteem
  • Relationship Issues
  • Sexual Issues
  • Substance Addiction/Dependency
  • Obsessions/Compulsions
  • Self-destructive Behaviors
  • Anger/Resentment
  • Guilt/Shame/Jealousy
  • Increased Performance Enhancement


RRT does not use essential oils or Christian paradigm.
Seal of Certification
  • Rapid Resolution Therapy™ (RRT™) for single issues.  Resolves one issue per session*(i.e. Traumatic Event(s), frozen grief, anxiety reduction, curb cravings, anger issues, and academic/performance enhancement!)   
  •  You save time and money.
    This means I meet with people who realize that impressions left by prior experiences have continued to cast a shadow or have had an effect that hasn't been useful for them. Then what I do is designed to and does clear that up so it's no longer problematic.
  • Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
  • Nightmares/Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks 
  • Grief
  • Abuse
  • Low Self-esteem
  • Relationship Issues
  • Sexual Issues
  • Substance Addiction/Dependency
  • Obsessions/Compulsions
  • Self-destructive Behaviors
  • Anger/Resentment
  • Guilt/Shame/Jealousy
  • Performance Enhancement
  • When you recognize that a problematic thought, feeling or behavior is not serving you well....give me a call so I can CLEAR it!
A Word About Insurance Coverage
  • With Insurance you may pay a co-pay of $40/hour but are limited to 50 min sessions.  Due to the nature of regular therapy it may take 10+ regular sessions to get the results you want.  Then add on your driving and loss of work time it can get quite expensive.
  • With RRT you pay $475 for up to 4 hour session and you will feel immediate results.
AMEN Brain Testing -
  • In Depth Certified Amen Brain Testing provides Recommendations for a healthier You.  This test identifies what part of your brain is working well, overworking or under-working and gives you the best recommendations for balancing your brain for optimum functioning. This requires 2-3, 1 hour sessions.  Cost is $300
EMDR treatment - In depth long term trauma treatment used for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).  Those that have suffered from childhood abuse or rape to Veterans, Medical personnel, Police, and public service workers are among those who benefit most from this treatment. Used only on request. $150/hour per session
My Philosophy
I offer Fully Confidential Services without work or health insurance notification.  This benefits your privacy and protects your future ability to stay insured!
I believe that one's mental health & personal life concerns should remain completely confidential, therefore I am no longer accepting insurance coverage for my services.  Most insurance companies require a medical diagnosis which may prevent you from obtaining coverage for a particular condition in the future.  Therefore I refrain from labeling anyone with a particular diagnosis unless you request it.  I believe in healing from within and that people are more than a diagnosis.  I will be happy to provide you with receipts which you can choose to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

  • I am uniquely experienced in integrating Young Living 100% Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to enhance and speed up your healing experience and processing recovery time.
  • Christian Life Biblical based counseling available at your request.  I have a Doctorate of Pastoral Science and am a Licensed Pastoral Therapist and ordained with a PScD. & D.PSc designations.
 
The results you experience are commensurate with the time and effort you invest in yourself. I love assisting people in their Mind, Body, and Spiritual Healing.
