Your Right To Discontinue Therapy
Counselor Welcome

In May 2005 I was awarded the Doctor of Ministry degree in Marriage and Family Counseling from Denver Seminary in Denver, Colorado (www.denverseminary.edu/). This program followed guidelines proposed by the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (www.aamft.org).

 

From 1992 to 2002 I served as spiritual director for Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch (www.dakotaranch.org/), a group of residential treatment facilities in Minot, Bismarck, and Fargo, North Dakota. As a member of the clinical treatment team, I conducted spiritual and pastoral counseling services with adjudicated youth, ages 13-18 who were placed by the legal system to address issues of chemical dependency, sex offending, and moderate to severe psychological, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Concurrently I attended over 300 hours of professional workshops on diverse clinical issues throughout the United States.
 
 

During this time I was engaged in a Clinical Pastoral Education (http://acpe.edu/) program at Trinity Medical Center in Minot where I trained to integrate the spiritual and clinical - the psychological and the theological. While there I supervised individuals and professional groups seeking to explore their personal life histories and experience, examining how that history impacted their vocational relationships with patients and congregational members. I am currently a clinical member of this international organization.

 

In addition to my private counseling practice, since 2010 I have been working as a pastoral consultant with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (www.lcms.org) helping congregations navigate through systems issues as they ready themselves for future ministry. I earned a Master of Divinity degree from Concordia Theological Seminary in 1981 and have served four churches (prior to becoming a consultant for the LCMS) throughout the United States as lead pastor.

 

I chose not to seek licensure by the state of Oregon so cannot bill your health insurance. To offset this, Iíve created a sliding scale fee schedule based on household income. For those who are financially challenged, this will be equivalent to their insurance deductible or copay.

 

Professional certifications include:

     > Clinical membership in the Association for Clinical Pastor Education.

     > Endorsement by the InterLutheran Committee for Specialized Ministries.
