My experience is in providing services to those struggling with a variety of issues such as addictions, abandonment issues, trauma, domestic abuse, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, divorce, grief and loss, low self-worth, and LGBTQ community.
If Covid -19 is affecting you, please call to discuss options. I believe that every client should receive a non-biased and non-judgmental place when looking for treatment. Life throws us situations in which we must adapt, change our ways, or avoid. A change can be challenging. More importantly, being stuck is sometimes harmful. I am here to help you face these difficult situations. I work through an integrative healing process, providing unconditional acceptance and compassion for every individual. Your healthiness is my happiness. I love what I do!

I specialize in adults with developmental disabilities including Asperger Syndrome, same-sex couples and transgender individuals.
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!

The unspeakable has happened - you lost your loved one to sudden death. Right now, it feels like you'll never recover. The pain is unbearable. There's no escape. You can't even focus your eyes. The agony is blinding. You can't run from it, and it's to immense to process. Every time you reach for the phone for help, something stops you. How could anyone possibly understand this pain? Each day it becomes worse - it's like a physical weight pinning you down, you can't move. You don't have to suffer through this moment alone.

Every individual has experienced internal conflict regarding their mental health. Some of those we navigate just fine on our own and that is awesome! Other times we need some guidance, new ideas on how to effectively communicate, affirmations that we "do hard things", or to have our views on a situation challenged so we can come back with greater understanding and additional empathy.

Beliefs like “I’m unloveable because I’m fat, ugly, and disgusting. It’s not even worth trying to be happy.” plague larger women. We get ghosted, shamed, and ignored - it’s SO HARD to feel good about ourselves. And size is always an issue. It creeps up in the too-small waiting room chairs, in the bedroom where we’re too self-conscious to be all-in while having sex, at work when we get passed up for promotions. We feel not good enough, that we’re not important, that we don’t deserve a good life, that we’ll die alone. And this is not just in our heads - we get these messages from the world constantly.

I work with adults and adolescents (16+) struggling with conflict, connection, and intense feelings. My clients come to me feeling isolated, lonely and on edge due to having nowhere to express their toughest emotions. Many grew up in a terrible family of origin with messages like "suck it up" and "don't cry" being taught to them. My clients come to me to say the things that they couldn't otherwise say to anyone else and learn what they need to engage back in life and relationships.

*Currently adding people to my waiting list.* One thing I have noticed through years of practice (with both teens and adults) is a need to be heard. To have your experience validated can be a monumental moment for introspective growth. Whether it is processing deep seeded developmental trauma, or expanding your self-awareness, I am willing to aid you on your personal journey. I vow to: never give advice, never judge you, never pretend I know more than you, or try and "fix" you. You are not broken. I will be genuine, provide a safe space, and walk beside you during whatever life may bring. I look forward to working with you!

Finding a therapist that makes you feel seen and connected can be an overwhelming task, especially when you've carried your pain alone for so long. When trauma occurs it and overwhelms our ability to cope, it can often intrude in the present moment long after the threat has passed. I am a trauma therapist and understand how the impacts of trauma can bring a human into significant internal and relational conflict. Whether your lived experiences have led you to struggling with depression, anxiety, intense emotion dysregulation, or substance use; I am here to carry it with you.

What type of Saint Peters 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 Saint Peters?
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.
