I have worked at inpatient and outpatient levels of care and use several different attachment-based approaches and trauma-focused modalities.
Living in a broken world naturally means we may often feel broken ourselves, detached from who we genuinely are, who we once were, and who we long to be. It is easy to lose connection with our true selves as we attempt to navigate our external relationships, past traumas, societal expectations, and the daily demands of this world. This disconnection can disrupt our sense of equilibrium and wholeness and can bring on feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, and a general dissatisfaction with life.

I take a relational and attachment-based approach.
Not accepting new clients due to Maternity Leave Nov '22 to Feb '23 - Are you tired and stressed? Maybe you're worried a lot about anything and everything and feeling overwhelmed. Life is constantly changing and you can't keep up. You are snapping at people, distracted, and struggling. You’re trying to move forward but you feel stuck. Maybe you are in constant conflict - yelling, and arguing over every little detail and you don't know how to help. You're wondering, "is this normal?" and feel alone. You've tried everything and no one else understands.

I consider it a privilege to come alongside courageous clients in the areas of depression, anxiety, abuse, PTSD, as well as strained & broken relationships. I integrate Christian spirituality with IFS (Internal Family Systems), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), EMDR, and attachment-based models of psychotherapy. I help clients connect what they "know" about God and living that knowledge out with the goal of a "head-heart" connection. Through this process, clients experience long-lasting healing as they learn to live in the freedom of authenticity.

I went into the field of psychology because I love helping people transform to the best version of themselves. We all need a safe place to understand ourselves and how we relate to others/self. I often say "We need to be Mindful of our Total-Well Being and that our minds and our bodies are an inter-connected systems. Where the mind goes, so does the man or woman in their actions and body states. We go to the physician for our physical health, so how much healthier would we be if we went to our psychologist for our mental health?" At heart, I am a holistic practitioner and love seeing my clients Thrive.

Life is a complex experience of pain and beauty and sometimes we need focused care to understand our experiences and heal from past wounds. I find it a privilege to walk alongside my clients through that process of discovery and healing. I became a licensed counselor in 2004 and worked in community mental health for 8 years, until the Fall of 2011 when I began working as a therapist. So for the last 11 years, I have been able to pursue my passion– counseling women struggling with depression and anxiety, those wrestling with their personal and spiritual identities, and those longing to make sense of their past and heal from trauma.

I want to congratulate you on taking steps towards creating a more meaningful relationship with yourself through therapy. Understanding ourselves more deeply can feel scary, however having the awareness on how to move forward with any of life’s challenges can feel empowering. By building competency through self-awareness, we can restore our ability to move through experiences and relationships with a sense of confidence, self-regulation, and compassion. My ideal client is someone who is struggling to learn how to give back to themselves both intimately and emotionally. This client will be very self-sufficient, but emotionally lost.

Confronting life’s problems is a painful process which most folks want to avoid. Unfortunately, avoiding the problems just results in more pain. I believe that learning to radically accept life as it happens helps us to manage and embrace the temporary distress that comes from life’s disappointments. When we learn to tolerate distress, we improve the quality of our lives. Improving our lives means that we exact peace and power during times of celebration and disappointment. It is my goal to validate my client's experiences while providing them the skills needed to fully embrace the peaks and tolerate the valleys of life.

My ideal client is someone who is just ready to feel better. They may not exactly know what is going on or why they are feeling the way that they do, all they know is that they just..want..to..feel..better. Whether it be life transitions, identity, overwhelming anxiety, perfectionism, intense emotions or resolving some trauma, you deserve the space to build and grow your confidence to navigate this complex world.

If you are wondering how you ended up here, and are not ready to give up yet, you have come to the right place. I work with people facing role changes: parenting, retirement, recovery. Many people have sadness, regret and traumatic experiences that make it hard to move on and be the person they have always envisioned. Talking with me might help.

If you are navigating sexual, romantic, or emotional difficulties I am here to help. Struggling with identity and authenticity in a sex negative, stigmatizing society can be an isolating experience. You and any partners need an affirming space to explore the full bounds of your potential. A validating and inclusive space can help you feel comfortable questioning the social constructs and relational education you’ve received that may no longer serve you. You will receive guidance in existing confidently and finding the connection you seek. You deserve someone who is on your side, rooting for your success, whatever that may look like.

Life can present us with a myriad of troubles. Sometimes we get stuck in survival mode; we’ve spent years just getting by or we’ve been knee deep in struggle. Maybe you’re tired? Tired of sadness, anger, hopelessness, physical pain, and anxiety. You’re ready for change, but need someone you can be honest with. Someone who won’t judge you, but will gently help you walk in new paths and gain the freedom and healing that you long for.

As a transgender therapist, one of my passions is working with clients who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ population. I enjoy collaborating with individuals who are exploring their gender and/or sexual identities and hope to offer guidance and compassion as they let go of any residual societal expectations. I have undergone the entire process of hormones, top surgery, and bottom surgeries and I am open with my clients about my experiences as we work to decrease their gender dysphoria and move toward the eventual goal of gender euphoria.

Therapy is a self-empowering process that guides you towards discovering and feeling like the truest version of yourself. With so many different therapeutic methods available, I try to combine the best techniques from various therapies and incorporate them in the most beneficial way for each individual. I make sure that my sessions provide a safe place to talk about any sort of sensitive information in a non-judgmental space. By working together in a therapeutic relationship we will be able to start the healing process towards a more healthy and grounded mindset.

What type of Saint Louis 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 Saint Louis?
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.
