            Rick Metrick,  

We all have times when it 
can be helpful to talk to a  professional counselor.  

There are times when emotional pain, dissatisfaction with some aspect of our lives, or specific stresses create difficulties too great to handle alone. 

Most first time clients have a number of reservations about seeing a therapist. I have constructed this web site to help prospective clients become more familiar with my practice.

Since counseling involves a dynamic relationship between the therapist and client, I attempt to tailor make therapy to the specific needs of each client.  

Each client is viewed as a creative person actively involved in the therapeutic process. Collaborating together allows the client to accomplish their goals and meet their specific challenges.

As you review our Statement of Disclosure, you will notice that we offer a unique spiritual approach for clients who desire spiritual guidance.  If fact, my doctorate in in  Christian Counseling Psychology.

Clients  should understand that we respect spiritual diversity and refrain from imposing our spiritual values on others.
