As a licensed marriage and family therapist with a specialty in couples counseling, Justin uses a systemic approach. This means all areas of a person’s life are taken into account when exploring how to improve mental health. With couples, focusing on how to change the behavior of self is important to altering the system of the relationship. When doing therapy with couples, Justin focuses on change that is required from each person in the relationship.
“A key to success in any endeavor is playing to your strengths,” Justin pointed out. “This is especially true in relationships. Find out who you are and what makes you great as an individual and a couple. This will build a solid foundation that will allow your relationship to thrive.”
Justin has a passion for helping couples in all areas of life-not just relational conflict- including but not limited to the stress involved with life transitions, grief, or family growth. It’s also important to remember that therapy can be preventative. The therapist’s office is a good place to learn more about your partner and explore possible pitfalls. It’s always honorable to want a better relationship; therapy is the perfect opportunity to put steps in place to develop that.
In addition to couples therapy, Justin treats adults with many types of common mental health struggles including but not limited to:
● Life transitions
● Career Counseling
Justin has been a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2009. He holds degrees from Murray State University and Harding School of Theology. Justin is a Level 1 Gottman Trained therapist.
