As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified EMDR Therapist, I have specific training in the use of EMDR in the treatment of trauma, addictions, and early attachment disorders. My advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the treatment of addictions, and over 15 years of experience in helping people to overcome their struggle with PTSD, anxiety, OCD, depression and substance use disorders will prove to be invaluable to you. I bring all of this experience and training into our sessions together in order serve you with excellence and compassion.
You're feeling like something is wrong. You're afraid this is what life is like now, your new normal. You don't recognize yourself. Maybe you don't know where or when things went left, maybe you do. Either way, you're angry and sad and confused. You're thinking it might be your fault.
Adolescents experience profound physical and psychological changes. These transitions bring about a sense of uniqueness and independence. Managing emotions during this time of discovery can be difficult, but developing knowledge and life skills can help struggling teens acquire the abilities to navigate and enjoy the adolescent years. Looking at situations through a different lens and perspective can build empathy, awareness and understanding. As embedded in my business name, Power of Perspective, the ability to see different perspectives can be life-changing and liberating by building a sense of control over one's emotions.
When you think of a well-rounded individual, the first thing you may think about is someone who is happy with their life and rolls with whatever life brings them. More often than not these days life has had some pitfalls. There is no reason to be ashamed.

Many successful women struggle with a pattern of toxic and abusive relationships. You feel invisible, unloveable, unseen, frustrated, and angry. You aren't valuing yourself as a result of having been devalued by people close to you, and you continue to find yourself in these types of unhealthy alliances - it's a toxic pattern that leaves you depleted, anxious and depressed. I want to help women BREAK OUT OF THAT CYCLE, and shift into a vibrant life that includes rewarding work, peace, joy, and happy healthy relationships.

Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, MA, MSc, CCTP
Is your heart always racing? Are you suffering from headaches, belly aches, tension in your back or neck? Do you lack patience with your kids, partner, colleagues, friends? Let's be real, life is hard. When we become overwhelmed with daily stressors, chronic stress, or trauma our body is impacted. Sometimes we need someone who isn't related to us and has no judgments to talk to. Maybe you are facing a big life change, maybe an event is constantly replaying in your mind, maybe the daily stressors are adding up. There is hope!
I have created a genuine, engaging therapeutic relationship with clients and apply my skills to provide a healing course of treatment. My experience includes individual sessions involving substance abuse, schizophrenia, developmental disability, career building, depression, and suicidal ideation. The group sessions include Soft Skills for Customer Service, Training and Retraining Employees, and Respecting Personal Space. My goal for the clients is to enhance their basic emotional, behavioral, and spiritual skills to attain peace in the midst of their storm. Thus, enabling them to apply wisdom in current and future situations.
Change is possible and hope always exists. I create a therapeutic environment of acceptance with no judgement so that change and growth can occur. Do you feel like you want an area of your life to be different? Or that something is wrong but you just can't pinpoint the source of the problem - or how to fix it? Taking that first step toward counseling is challenging but the benefits will include increased self-esteem, better relationships, a clearer understanding of self, increased productivity and a greater ability to deal with stress. What is the point of waiting when you can start feeling better today!
Are you experiencing stress in your life? Do you want to improve your marriage or family relationships? Are you going through a major life transition? Individuals, couples and families that work with me often experience greater peace, energy, and joy in life and more harmony in their key relationships. My specialties include strengthening marriages, overcoming stress, men's challenges and Christian Counseling. My work has been featured on NBC KSDK NewsChannel 5's Today in St. Louis, Bott Radio Network and St. Louis Woman Magazine.
Are you struggling with life today? Have your mood been a roller coaster ride? I commend you for taking the first step. I am looking forward to working with you to identify and address issues holding you back. Together, we will work to distinguish behavior patterns that are contributing to your symptoms. You will be challenged to view things in a different way or learn new ways to react to events or people. You will begin to make sense of your symptoms, define and reach goals, cope with stress, make sense of past traumatic experiences, identify triggers, improve relationships, and live a happier life.
