My training and modalities include CBT, EMDR, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy.
Life can often become overwhelming. If you continue down the path you are headed your overall health and mental well-being most likely will continue if you do not change direction. Often the people and experiences we encounter lead to beliefs about ourselves and the world that aren't accurate. Change is possible; we all have the capability to heal. Creating a non-judgmental space for you to explore, heal, and grow is a priority. Therapy is a highly individualized process; it is all about you and working collaboratively to achieve your goals. I am here when you are ready! Being fully present to assist you would be an honor.

My counseling style is a strength based approach, I am skilled in CBT, Client Centered, Solution Focused , and DBT modalities.
Sometimes we all feel a little bit broken, we can get so caught up in what's going wrong or what's not working. Sometimes life get's hard, too much stress at home or work, relationship issues, grief and loss, addiction, depression, anxiety or feeling like we have just lost our way. No matter what is going on, you have taken that first step and you have come to the right place.

I use a variety of models in my therapy work, including behavioral, solution focused and family-based orientations.
Our lives can be filled with so many obstacles and challenges on a daily basis. Whether these challenges are personal, family, work or peers, we sometimes need to get additional perspectives and clarity on some of life's most pressing issues. I view therapy as a way for clients to seek personal growth and find helpful solutions moving forward. I use humor, compassion and unconditional support to help individuals, couples and families work through a variety of presenting issues. My goal is to help clients resolve the main problem in therapy and help them gain additional strengths and insights in their lives.

Unbeknownst to many, the stigma associated with "therapy" is lifting. Society is waking up and realizing overall health needs to be a non-negotiable. My passion lies in supporting & educating clients on brain/nervous system health; increased awareness on thought/behavioral patterns that exacerbate overall stress, feelings of unworthiness, and unhealthy cycles. My ideal client is ready to do some hard work and be challenged, curious and brave enough to look inside, get honest with self, work on vulnerability, and face their fears. Together, we will identify and dig out the roots that no longer serve them and plant new seeds.

Working with new clients- Do you feel stuck? I have been helping clients for 28 years- people-pleasers, perfectionists, high achievers and everyone who feels anxious, overwhelmed, exhausted and feel like they aren't measuring up. Do you engage in critical self-talk, compare and despair, impossible expectations? I teach clients strategies that positively impact relationships, mood, stress, work, parenting, lifestyle, etc. Thoughts play an important role in how we perceive ourselves, others, and our environment. I aim to identify negative, inaccurate, self-limiting thoughts and evolve them into limitless thinking patterns.

I will encourage you to grow, develop resilience and explore new ways of experiencing the world with a curious, thoughtful mindset.

The best therapeutic relationships are based on trust and mutual respect. I am adept at finding that common ground and helping clients feel secure in sharing their struggles and fears. I use a strengths-based perspective to help clients recognize their unique potential and identify the changes that are in their control. With this information, clients can enact real change to improve their lives. I partner with clients of all ages, with a special ability for connecting with teens and adults under 40.

"What should I do with my life?" Students and adults today are overwhelmed by the options available and yet don't have enough information to make informed decisions. I work with individuals daily regarding all aspects of the college and career process helping them discover the best path for them. My philosophy is "It's all about FIT". Find what is right for YOU and the rest will fall in place. Should I take a gap year after high school? Enroll in college right away? Leave one job or career for another? I work with both teens and adults making decisions. Decisions like these require thought and conversation. Let's talk!

I often say, counseling can be a bit like cleaning out a closet. You have to take things out, go through and organize them, and then put them back where they need to go. In a similar fashion, counseling can be messy, but with time and hard work, can lead to healthier, more enjoyable living. Throughout this life, we all have our individual struggles and hardships, but we weren't meant to carry them alone. No matter who you are or what you've been through, there is hope. In our sessions together, I strive to come alongside you in the pursuit of that hope and restorative healing.

Life is unpredictable. It’s full of twists, turns, and bumps along the way. A lot of the time, we acclimate and move right along, but other times, it throws us completely off course. Serious and chronic illness, difficult life transitions, divorce, or the loss of a loved one – it can leave us feeling depressed, anxious, angry, confused, isolated, and lost. When the unthinkable happens to you, how do you get to a place where you feel safe, content, and at peace? Whatever your therapeutic goals may be, you deserve to feel heard, understood, and validated.

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.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Kirkwood, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
