Hi. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counsleor. I want perspective clients to know I genuinely care about the people I work with, and have a passion for joining people on their journey to a new self. The fact that you are searching for a therapist shows you would like something to change. This is very brave. We can often lose perspective about situations and how we deal with them. This can also be a result of things we have buried from our past, or relationships that did not support us in the way we need.

One of the beautiful things I have the privilege of witnessing as a therapist is the ever-evolving changes and awareness clients develop throughout their healing and growth process. I fully believe that each and every one of us is worth investing the work within ourselves when we develop the courage to seek help. I consider the therapeutic relationship with clients to be a team effort towards reaching the client’s desired goals and outcomes in a safe, non-judgmental space.

Extensive research shows that the client-therapist relationship is the most important part of therapy. I encourage you to find the right fit. Topics I have helped clients successfully work through: complex trauma, helping change attachment styles, boundary identification & implementation, infidelity, dysfunctional communication, repetitive arguments on the same topic, kinks or differences in sexual interests (ex. BDSM, non-monogamy, cuckolding, etc.), and severe anxiety/depression. My speciality is helping individuals & couples find new ways of relating in order to embrace the complexity of love in their relationships.

Hello! I'm Kelly. I was born and raised in Southern Illinois. I grew up in a military family and so have a sense of understanding of how community can help. I received my MSW in Social Work from SIU Edwardsville in 2013 and got my LCSW in 2017. I have worked with children in all different settings since 2014. The LGBTQ community has been a part of my practice, especially when working in the most rural of areas. I have helped children and adults with different diagnoses over the course of my career and continue growing in my knowledge of how to serve each individual.

Do you go to bed each night promising tomorrow will be better? Do you promise you will have more patience, the kids will behave better, and you will enjoy the day?But then tomorrow comes and it just felt like a repeat of yesterday. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20+ years experience working with kids and families (especially moms!) through private practice and in public schools. Over the last two decades, I've helped countless kids, both directly by working with them and indirectly by working with the adults important to their lives; we've changed behavior, improved relationships, and answered: "What is wrong with them?"

Hello, I'm Tracey. Did you know that people do one of two things when they feel like no one is listening? The person either repeats oneself over and over or just stops talking. Did you know that research supports that any person surviving an adverse or traumatic experience will need on average about 7 times to tell their story to begin the healing process? Do you feel tied to a toxic dynamic with one or both of your parents despite you being an adult that has left you living in the past and feeling like a burden, not measuring up, chasing that parent in hopes of a glimmer of insight while finding many of your current life domains

Each person is a unique individual with their own needs. It is necessary to acknowledge and validate cultural experiences in the therapy space. You will find me creatively thinking of ways to engage you in this process as well as inviting you to examine the influence of these factors on your own life. Bigotry and stigmas are ever-present in our society so I strive to provide a safe space for all of my clients.

This profile gets updated regularly, and is current and accurate. I'm a therapist with 13 years of full-time psychotherapy experience. In my work with clients, I offer an environment of care, compassion, humility, and human understanding. Despite its beauty, the human experience is laden with struggles, challenges, and complexities. Often these issues are worth or necessitate exploring. I enjoy working with a wide range of concerns, and I specialize in trauma, dating, and attachment. I incorporate cognitive theory, advanced knowledge of modern dating, psychodynamics, interpersonal neurobiology, and EMDR in my approach.

I think many of us have parts of ourselves that we’re afraid to examine too closely. Having company can make this process less frightening. I’m here to support my clients as we explore where they’re hurting, and why they’re not feeling better yet. I prefer to focus on our shared human condition instead of specific diagnoses - loneliness, pain, longing for love, pushing others away, feeling at odds with ourselves... I'm here to listen, and help each client find kindness for themself.

You deserve to feel connected to yourself, have fulfilling relationships, and genuinely enjoy your life. Whether you can’t remember the last time you felt those things or they have recently begun to drift away – we can rediscover them together. As a therapist, I am here not to tell you how to think or feel, but to help you explore how you truly do think and feel. We will hold space to be curious about all your experiences, so you can understand and appreciate yourself as a whole person. We will take the time to learn about who you are, what shaped you into the person you are today, and what your hopes are for the future.
