As a licensed clinical psychologist, I am keenly aware of the courage it takes to reach out to a therapist. It is my hope to build a safe, strong, and productive connection with every person I work with. As a generalist, I work with individuals, groups, couples, and families across the life span with a focus on individual and couples therapy.
Through my doctoral work at Fuller Theological Seminary and continued training at George Fox University, I have a considerable amount of specialty experience in the integration of faith and psychology. I have continued in all of my work to be sensitive and intentional regarding the spirituality and faith of all my patients, regardless of creed, and maintain ethical fidelity to my role as a licensed clinical psychologist.
I have experience working in outpatient clinics, elementary schools, hospitals, and outpatient primary care settings. With training in Marriage and Family Therapy, CBT, ACT, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Spirituality, Parenting, Health Psychology, and Neuropsychological assessment, I draw from a broad base of expertise to construct a personalized approach with every patient. I find great meaning in my work, and am honored to share in others’ journeys through life. You can reach Dr. Sonnekalb at email@example.com.
