I have interest in working with adults and adolescents who experience women's issues, anxiety, depression, postpartum issues, identity, eating disorders, childhood abuse/ trauma, family of origin issues, and sexuality.
The choice to enter into your story is admirable. Examining past wounds and current patterns is brave and risky. I count it a privilege to partner with clients as we work toward health and freedom. You can expect a safe and compassionate space to engage your pain, fears, passion, desires and self. I collaborate with clients to address areas of struggle, need and strength. I delight in pointing clients toward the hope that pain does not have the final say.

I feel passionate about helping women and families during the life-changing journey of pregnancy and parenthood.
You are trying hard to keep it all together. You are straddling your personal and professional lives. You desperately want to stay on top of everything but you have difficulty keep up. You want to be present with your family but your endless to-do list swirls through your mind. You feel guilty, anxious, and tired. You are feeling more disconnected from friends and family. You just want to feel like your happy self again. It doesn't have to be this way and you are not alone in the struggle. I can help you reconnect with your needs, your voice, your sense of self.

I have been personally affected by a high risk pregnancy , a traumatic birth and a NICU stay. That is what has led me to this work. For the past eleven years, my work has been with perinatal mental health; specifically working with women with high risk pregnancies due to a congenital anomaly identified in their baby during pregnancy . I am here to help anyone that is struggling with feelings of angst and unrest about those unexpected challenges that are thrown your way. I have worked a great deal with perinatal and infant loss as well. I have a growing passion for helping women, specifically focusing on maternal mental health.

I've assisted women and their partners with handling intense symptoms related to postpartum adjustment, infertility, and pregnancy loss.
I often work with people to manage issues in their lives that have become difficult and distressing, such as separation/divorce, career/job changes, grief/loss, relocation, becoming a parent, and retirement. Some clients experience symptoms of anxiety or depression and we focus on realistic, practical strategies to reduce their intensity and impact. My approach involves closely assessing how these issues impact daily life, how relationships are affected, what support has or hasn't been available and then develop a plan for working toward changes and greater satisfaction in life.

My areas of expertise include eating disorders and compulsive exercise, depression, anxiety, OCD, BFRB, postpartum issues, and a variety of mood disorders.
Do you struggle with balance? No, not the standing on one foot while juggling type of balance, but the type that includes finding the “gray area”. I’m either a success, or I am a failure. My life is going perfectly, or it’s a disaster. If I don’t have it all figured out, I should just throw in the towel. Sound familiar? Whether it includes food/body image/exercise, parenting, work, or social life, I promise balance exists, you just might need a little help finding it. This is where I come in.

I believe the cornerstone of therapy is establishing a warm, collaborative, and meaningful connection in which we can explore our emotions and anxieties, cultivate greater self-awareness, and find ways to heal and grow that might feel overwhelming on our own. While I work with a wide variety of clients and concerns, my practice is centered mainly around addressing anxiety, emotional well-being, self-esteem, relationship concerns, as well as life and health transitions including perinatal mental health.

You feel like you're barely hanging in there. Like you've lost your way, or maybe even yourself. You just can't seem to get back on solid footing-emotionally OR mentally. You’ve tried your usual tips and tricks to feel better, but they’ve barely moved the needle. Your brain feels like it's not your friend and it's tough to find happiness in the things that usually bring you joy. Your confidence has been knocked down a few pegs. You either feel keyed up with constant worry or knocked flat, laying on the couch or your bed without the energy to do anything. And now you've decided: it's time for a change.

I believe that no matter what age you are, most emotional struggles stem from a feeling of disconnection - from self, family and friends, or the world in general. You may feel as if you aren't yourself lately, or as if relationships have become difficult to navigate. Possibly you're having a hard time staying present and engaging in the world around you. If you are seeking therapy for your child or your teen, it may seem as if their behaviors or reactions don't match up to the situation they are in. Feeling seen, heard, and understood in therapy can allow adults and children to build or repair connections to self and others.

Are you and your partner feeling more and more like roommates? What happened? We used to have such a great connection and so much passion for each other. Now we feel like we are just going through the motions, trying to get through our days and survive. If this is what your relationship looks like right now, I’d love to work with you to help figure out where you lost each other. Where the communication got stuck and almost non-existent. Our work together will bring back that closeness and connection that you miss. That safe space where you can be yourself and know that your partner is there for you and has your back no matter what.

Our focus as we work together will be on life-long SUSTAINABLE change. How often have you changed, and then life rolls over you or memories overwhelm you, and your response shows you that the change didn't stick? My first aim is to help clients build new habits, new perspectives, and new thought patterns; my second and equally important goal is to grow deep roots on those hard-fought-for changes. When you have worked so desperately and confronted the old you, grown in grace and love toward yourself and others, we will be sure that those powerful transitions will be held on to and established as a way to thrive.

You've learned ways to get by, even if they aren't the healthiest options, and you pull it off well, maybe even perfectly. But along the way, you've picked up burdens you can't seem to set down. You're overwhelmed, and some days you aren't sure who you are anymore. There is a small part of you that wonders if maybe there's something more for your life, or if maybe there's a way forward that doesn't feel so hard. I believe healing happens when we are reoriented toward what is truly good for us and entertain the possibility of more of it.

Hi there, I am here to help you. I work with individuals, couples, and families with struggles ranging from current life issues, relationship struggles, and issues that have been a lifelong battle. Clients often come to me because they have hit the lowest point and have never felt more alone, even after trying therapy countless times before. Many clients have left counseling finding resolution and a drive to live their life to the fullest. My clients have expressed finding healing, feeling equipped to manage life, and having healthier relationships and connections with others that they previously thought weren't possible.

What type of Kirkwood 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Kirkwood?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
