Hello Friend! Feel free to call me Jazz or Jazzy. I’m a curious person who loves helping my fellow humans find their way back home to themselves. This can mean different things depending on the individual, which is why we will work together to decide what it means for you. You’re the expert on your lived experience, I’m the one with the student debt for this degree, and we will work as a team to meet your therapeutic goals. My intention in sessions is to provide a safe place where you can finally set down some of the heavy burdens like anxiety, self-harm, shame, and trauma and begin to unpack them.

Everyone has a story, and every story is complex. Maybe you feel exhausted, stuck, alone, or anxious. Maybe you've hit another difficult patch and you're uncertain of where to turn. Maybe your relationships feel harder than they used to, or perhaps you're tired of experiencing chronic shame. The good news is that life doesn't have to be this way forever; real change is possible. Your struggles and your pain are real, and I want you to know that my office is a safe place where we can explore healing together. I work with teens, adults, and couples, and I have received advanced training in EFT (Emotion Focused Therapy).

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.

You are tired of fighting, having to explain yourself, being disappointed, and grieving the life you planned as a child. Parenting is one of the HARDEST and most fulfilling experiences that one can have in this lifetime, but it can sometimes feel like a constant battle. If you toss in co-parenting with an ex-partner, trying to integrate a new partner into your "ready-made" family, and/or being a caregiver to a family member due to unfavorable circumstances, things get a lot more complicated. Being the child in these situations, can be even harder to navigate because everything can feel so unstable. All of it feels exhausting!

My expertise is helping women to feel better about their lives. Together, we will discover effective coping skills. Tired of feeling not good enough? Are you afraid to participate in life? Does anxiety keep you from sleeping? Experiencing unresolved issues? Are you stuck in a painful past? Do you use food, alcohol/drugs, work, relationships or spending money as a way to cope with painful feelings? I will provide support and help you explore solutions.

I know that reaching out for help can be one of the hardest things any of us do. That’s why I aim to make your experience with help-seeking and mental health as approachable and, dare I say, as fun as possible. I believe that counseling and therapy should be an experience that challenges us in different ways and pushes us to grow through our problems. That’s why, in addition to traditional one-on-one therapy, I offer new and different approaches such as animal-assisted therapy and cognitive-based adventure therapy. There are so many avenues we can take to change ourselves and I hope that what I offer can make that accessible.

Each day brings new challenges. Some involve our families or our jobs or our relationships, but all involve our minds. Healing begins with the recognition that these battles are not obstacles, but doorways, to a better life — opportunities to develop ourselves in ways we couldn’t previously imagine. You possess the capacity for greatness. You have a purpose! Awareness and the vulnerability to trust another human are keys to unlocking your potential in these ways. Therapy provides an outlet to experience yourself as such, and to work toward the harmony and inner peace you’ve longed for.

It’s not easy to maintain a relationship and grow as individuals at the same time. Sometimes relationships can get stuck when you’re arguing about the same thing, and it can feel like you just can’t seem to get on the same page. Or, maybe your relationship is changing in a big way—parenthood, marriage, someone’s career—and you want to work through that decision or create a plan. Whatever stage you are in, counseling can be a great place to update the relationship and come together in an intentional way. I would be honored to work with you and help you to rebuild your connection, restore joy, and grow stronger as a couple.

Accepting new daytime clients as of June 2022. - If you are like me, you have procrastinated this decision to seek counseling for some time, and you are steadily nearing desperation. Entering into therapy is difficult - it is important to find a therapist with whom you connect. I provide a free phone consultation and a half price first session, so we can decide if we are a good fit. I work best with clients who are motivated to begin the explorative process towards healing. I seek to honor the vulnerability required to make changes in one's life by listening without judgment and growing to understand the individual's experiences.

Do you live in a world of sadness that feels like it will swallow up everything else in your life? Perhaps you are grieving the loss of a loved one, a situation, or how you thought life would be. Or maybe you feel a push-pull between punishing yourself out of guilt, and letting yourself heal so you can move forward. Many of my clients begin therapy feeling trapped in the past, whether that involves a childhood trauma or a decision they regret. I can help you understand what you’ve been through and how it’s impacted you. By embracing your story, the good and the bad, you can feel a sense of peace you may not be able to imagine.

Have you been combing the St. Louis area for a therapist, only to be discouraged because no one felt like the right fit? Been there. Have you been putting off seeing someone because the thought of laying on a chaise lounge, talking about yourself to a stranger across the room for an hour gives you heartburn? Been there. Have you been avoiding getting help because you feel like that means you actually have to acknowledge that you need it? Holy moly, I’ve been there. While I can’t speak to your experience, I understand that the decision to go to therapy can feel impossibly hard. Seeking therapy/treatment shouldn’t feel like a burden.

We seem to struggle to create room for self-compassion and acceptance in our lives, usually because they’ve been crowded out by our self-criticism or perfectionism. We have come by most of this honestly through the ways we were affected by early experiences in childhood or adolescence. When together we find a way to be with your experiences, including the difficult emotions that may arise when exploring them, we find our way to meaning and purpose. We find our way to the recognition of our shared humanity. We find our way to a more authentic and wholehearted life.
