I am glad you are here. In order to know whether I am a good fit for you, let me tell you about myself and my understanding of what it means to be your therapist. After working as an R.N. and a pastor/chaplain, I realized that counseling was truly my passion. So, I went back to school – again! I received my Master’s in Social Work and have been working as a therapist for the last five years. In my practice, I see adults and children aged 10 and up. I am willing to consider seeing younger children on a case-by-case basis. I also do couple’s therapy. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional - II and specialize in trauma.

I have worked with youth and adults who have had traumatic experiences, or adults with unresolved trauma from their life for over 20yrs.
Thank you for taking the time to seek counseling for yourself or your family. I know it is not an easy process to seek help from someone you do not know. I have been told I have a direct approach to assist in getting through painful memories at a gentle pace. I believe old pains can be healed if allowed to be shared and explored. I offer daytime, evening, and some Saturday appointments and use text alerts for appointment reminders. I offer both in-person and telehealth appointments.

"Wellness is attainable and I believe that it starts in the mind by learning how to take on difficulties in a healthier way. Whether it's a millennial facing workplace issues, or a working mom who is having difficulty managing it all. You don't have to bare these burdens alone. Sometimes you need a un-biased opinion or just a listening ear to assist in the process. Your pursuit for counseling shows strength not weakness. With work, support, and commitment your goals can be reached".

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Springfield?

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
