I provide psychological assessment and psychotherapy services. Though I understand the value of "diagnosing" a person's particular problem, I'm definitely against labeling a person as such. A person's difficulties--you name it: anxiety, trauma, depression--is what it means in part to be human. Everyone has some type of challenge, to various degrees (and certainly, some more than others). What a client requires, in many cases, is adequate resolution about negative things that has happened to him or her in life. Also, clients often need new skills in dealing with life's current and future expected challenges.

I am here for those that are fed up, tired, lost, misunderstood, disconnected, and hopeless. Here is a place to release your burden and create a new path. You do not have to stay trapped in your confusion. You do not have to continue to shut down or shut out. You do not have to keep hiding. I can guide you into making sense of your experiences. This leads to new perspectives that allow space for making new meaning or finding solutions. Is your home a war zone? Has your spouse become a stranger? Your child out of control? Life unbearable? Let me help you find clarity in your circumstances and tools to move forward. Find your freedom.

Over the last 20 years I have enjoyed meeting and working with people in their homes not only as a therapist but a parent educator, and advocate. It has been my experience that by meeting in the comfort of their own home people feel more encouraged to change when they can talk authentically with someone who actively listens to their concerns and issues utilizing reflective strategies. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Both Missouri. I am certified in trauma, anxiety, grief, and Child Parent Psychotherapy.

Maybe you're feeling stuck. Maybe you are seeking answers but not able to see through the darkness. Maybe peace feels impossible. Maybe you're questioning who you are or going through a life transition. Maybe it's your relationship or parenting or past hurts. This life experience is filled with highs, lows, and in-between moments. At times, we all want someone to join in our journey and walk alongside us so we can feel supported. I am here to meet you where you are in your life right now. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that all of life is relational, whether that is within or outside with family, friends, society.

Life is a journey, a journey that is most difficult when traveled alone. I strive to walk with clients on their path towards healing and happiness. Working from a client-centered approach, it is essential for me to understand each client as an individual to develop trust and a partnership in therapy. Relationships, trauma, careers and other stressors take a toll on a person's ability to flourish. I believe that each person has potential for growth from those experiences. My goal is to help you regain your footing on your path to living a full and vibrant life.

Relationships can be difficult. I work with clients to develop and execute plans to help them reach the goals they would like to achieve; both individually and within the context of their relationships. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I work hard to ensure my clients feel comfortable, well informed about their treatment goals and progress, and that the therapeutic methods being used align the two. In this space of authenticity and safety, clients are able to reach the insight and connection they've been missing in their relationships with themselves, their partners, and others.

The decision to see a counselor may be intimidating or overwhelming. Sometimes we need to seek help outside family and friends. It is not easy to walk through the door and talk to a complete stranger. I want you to know I have been where you are right now, and I hope you will reach out. I work with individuals who struggle with abandonment/trauma/abuse. I also work with couples who struggle with communication/infidelity/trust/conflict resolution. Investing in yourself and your relationships will be the most important investment of your lifetime.

Change is an inevitable part of life. Transitions are as natural as night and day. In nature we observe times when things move slowly without visable change - and then suddenly acceleration occurs followed by a transformation. I am a therapist/professional counselor who works with individuals ranging from childhood through late adulthood, couples, and families to assist them in finding personal growth, and work confidently through the natural transitions life brings. I recognize each client as unique and direct my counseling to the whole person; which attends to the body, mind, and spirit of each.
