About

I’m excited to have recently opened Dunsdon Counseling, LLC to offer mental health services in Independence, MO and the surrounding area. I graduated from UMKC in 2012 with my Master’s Degree in Social Work. I have been practicing as a therapist for more than 5 years. I work with children, parents, individuals and couples. I use an individualized, holistic approach, focusing treatment on the need of each client. I believe in the worth of all persons and value each person's unique life experience.
I specialize in issues related to anxiety, depression, postpartum depression, PTSD, parenting stresses/parenting skills, grief and other general life struggles. I work with individuals, teens and families. Children under 12 will be seen on a limited basis.
I use a variety of techniques in my practice including traditional talk therapy, EMDR, and trauma informed care to assist client's through the challenges and struggles of life. When working with children (limited basis) I use a variety of play therapy skills, including sand tray, to assist children process their thoughts and feelings.
