Often we find ourselves in our life's journey seemingly finding that the right road has been lost. Have your dreams for yourself changed? Do you lack clarity for what your life could look like? Have you experienced past trauma that seems to return to your mind when you least expect it? Has your own view of spirituality changed or shifted over the years? Have you experienced trauma from religion due to who you are? Are you seemingly in a hamster wheel of actions looking for a change? If any of this resonates with you, I can help you re-create your own path through life.

Genuine, realistic help. What meeting with me will be like? This will very much be decided by me and you together. We will chart a journey toward what “better” could look like for you and what tools and skills we can build together to get you there. Above all, I want you to feel welcomed and comfortable. I have worked hard to create a setting that feels inviting, warm, and safe.

My approach with clients usually ranges between goal-oriented and psychodynamic. We can address specific areas of improvement non-judgmentally. We can explore early childhood experiences or address traumatic events and how to move forward while challenging negative thoughts and beliefs along the way. With the treatment centered around the client’s needs, I also acknowledge intersections between race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and other cultural aspects of the client.

"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".

Hope is better when it's combined with a plan. If you are having too many fights and not enough resolution, I can help you. I help couples figure out how to resolve stuff once and for all. Even when you're successful in most areas of life, It's hard to be happy when problems are chronically unresolved. It's even worse when the past hangs over the relationship, or you feel like room-mates. If your relationship problems are weighing down your otherwise great life, then counseling can make a big difference.

Do thoughts like "I can't shake my past", "I don't think this pain will ever go away", or "I'm stuck" preoccupy your mind? Often, when something traumatic happens, it can get trapped in your brain with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, and feelings. Since the experience is stuck there, it continues to be triggered whenever a reminder comes up. It can be the basis of a lot of discomfort and negative emotions. We can process those memories so they are no longer disturbing using an evidence based treatment called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

A Christian perspective can be included if desired.
Not accepting new clients 12/22. When life brings obstacles, it can be hard to find the way to peace and contentment. Have you recently experienced a loss, or is sadness or anxiety making it difficult for you to get through your days? Are you experiencing past or present hurts and traumatic memories that interfere with your emotional and physical health? You may be feeling you will “never be enough" based on rejections from the past, or struggling to find your voice or connection in a marriage or relationship. If you are feeling lost and uncertain what to do next, I am here to help with compassion and non-judgment.

Through use of modalities such as CBT, DBT and Christian counseling, I work to provide my clients with the toolbox they need to fully heal and grow.
Since becoming a therapist, I have been pursuing my passion of providing high quality therapeutic care to those who have experienced chronic, complex trauma and are now wanting to break the cycle and heal. I am a firm believer that trauma impacts our whole beings. And left untreated, trauma takes an emotional and physical toll that wreaks havoc on our mind, bodies, and spirits. I take pride in working with my clients to build a collaboration and empowering my clients to be the expert in their own lives and be the drivers in their own treatment process. I also offer clinical supervision to those working towards licensure.

What type of Springfield mental health professional is right for me?
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?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. 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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
