I practice cognitive behavioral therapy. This framework will allow us to help you to change the way you are thinking about your situation, your behaviors that may be affecting your situation, and to make important life decisions. While I believe in being supportive, I will also challenge your thinking at times to help you to see more options for yourself or your family that you haven't previously seen. Homework is sometimes also used to better assist you with making progress faster and starting the life you are wanting to live.

Hi! I’m passionate about helping people reduce the spiral of anxiety, connect with themselves and others, and heal from past hurt. To help clients, I often start by establishing stability - learning to ride the waves out. After some stability, we work on healing the inner systems by understanding how and why those waves matter to someone.

Life can get overwhelming at times. Even if you are typically the “strong one” and the one who is there for everyone else. You do your best to be a hard worker, good friend, and always try to do the right thing. But now because of everything going on you’re feeling exhausted, betrayed, grieving, angry, or simply not yourself. You just want to feel heard. That your pain will truly be seen and you won’t be judged for it.

I feel every individual has the right to choose his own path. I am here to help clarify issues when a client feels overwhelmed by stress, depression,family issues or work related issues. Our world is so fast paced and we are expected to keep up, so when not if we fall short it effects other aspects of our basic functionality . At times we just need a objective person to provide supportive feedback.

I seriously understand how scary change can be. You are the only person who can decide when it's time to take control of your own mental health. Think about what it would feel like to truly, LAUGH, again. I am a professional mental health provider with profound experience in working with those seeking change. Change in your personal life. Change in your relationships with others. Change in how you parent. Change in understanding that you have the tools/power to reduce your own anxiety/depression. Change that you can choose not to carry your trauma forward.

Sometimes taking the first step can be the hardest. I help those on their search for self exploration and gender identity as well as depression and anxiety. I am a professional allied in LGBTQ+ treatment. Taking the first step can be scary but therapy is a place of safety, a place to have your thoughts and feelings heard and validated. A place where you are in control of what you want the conversation to be and what direction you take. Also offering group therapy for teens on Wednesday nights one for trauma (7-8pm) and one teen depression and resilience (530-630pm) at Ozarks Counseling Center for group please call 417-869-9011.

My greatest reward as a therapist is helping clients explore ways to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope. I believe that we all may need someone to talk with who will listen and accept us as we are, without judgment. I hope I can create a warm, relaxed environment-a safe space to explore challenges that may be preventing you from living the life you want.

I enjoy my role, as a counselor, in providing a safe and compassionate place for individuals to feel seen and heard. I enjoy working with individuals that are aware that they need to do something different but aren't sure what the next step is. This could be parents concerned about their child's behavior, needs at school, adolescents and adults going through life transitions, mental health concerns or just needing a safe space to talk and process life. I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults with a variety of mental health needs and also have over 10+ years of experience in the public education system.

Maybe you are about to get married. Maybe you are in a relationship and haven't yet considered marriage. Maybe you've been married for 5, 13, even 35 years. Every relationship at some point experiences hardship and difficulty. It takes a lot of effort and energy to make a relationship succeed and stay close connected and intimate. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to find the energy, the will, or the motivation to truly give your heart to your partner. Whenever there is brokenness, my goal is to take those broken parts and bring them back together to make a whole relationship again.

Healthy boundaries, relationships and communication can be really hard. Feelings of doubt, anxiety and /or depression can influence our behaviors, emotions and mood. If these or other areas of concern are preventing you from reaching your full potential, counseling can be an empowering experience. We open our lives and our hearts to strangers in counseling. It’s natural to want to find a person whom you can relate to and trust before beginning this journey. I look forward to partnering with you during your time of discovery. As an EMDR practioner we can discuss if this integrated approach is right for you.

I truly believe that all people want to and deserve to feel good and be happy. Much of our lives are spent trying to achieve these goals yet we continue to feel disappointed and like something is missing. I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, conflict in relationships, difficulty with emotions, trauma, shame, or even a general sense of hopelessness or discontentment in life. My hope in therapy is to come alongside you and make sense of what you are feeling and/or experiencing while working toward healing and wholeness in yourself and your relationships.

What type of Aurora 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 Aurora?
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.
