Dr. Lance has 14 years of experience in the field. His graduate degrees are in counseling/marriage and family therapy, clinical psychology, and general psychology.

His major focus is in helping individuals, couples, and families improve communication, enhance self-esteem, and work through life-limiting blocks to greater happiness and fulfillment.

Personal Statement
It takes courage to look at out lives, our relationships, and ourselves honestly and openly. Many of us avoid our emotional symptoms of anxiety, depression, relationship problems, compulsions, addictions, and general feelings of loneliness and emptiness, hoping it will just go away. Most of us wouldn’t avoid these indicators if they were physical, or mechanical, such as maintaining our cars. But, we tend to avoid these symptoms in our own emotional or relational lives out of fear of addressing the real issues in our lives. Sometimes we feel like we should be able to solve these problems on our own, but rarely can we see clearly our own issues when we are living inside them. We often need someone to help us see more clearly the issues and patterns that we are blind to in our lives. I like to see myself as someone who helps individuals and couples improve communication, enhance self-esteem, and work through life limiting blocks to greater happiness and fulfillment. Recently, I have been involved with understanding child and adult emotional development and its impact on loving relationships throughout life.

I am a licensed psychologist with many years experience doing individual, marital, and couples therapy. I try to create a warm and safe environment for individuals and couples to address and work through issues that block their happiness and growth as a person.
