The focus of what I offer is to invite and empower you to practice trusting the wisdom of your body. By doing this, a more secure and trusting relationship with yourself can begin to develop. In time, this can help you to navigate stressors and aid you in trauma recovery. A person generally finds relief, compassion, and an empowered sense of self from this process.

Have you ever wished you had a relationship mentor? “Loving well is an art, Getting there is a science.” Backed by over 40 years of research is why I have been practicing Gottman Methods for 15 years thus far. My couples come to me because they are struggling with understanding each other, their struggles in how to communicate and resolve conflict has not only destroyed their friendship but has left them feeling alone and leading parallel lives. They desire that connection and miss the fondness and admiration, and intimacy they once had.

I work with many different challenges, but I specialize in 3 areas: grief and loss therapy, addiction counseling, and narcissistic abuse recovery. These are things not all counselors are trained in. However, grief affects us all and comes in many forms: loss of a loved one, job loss, or breakup/divorce. Some clients that see me are relying on substances to get through and wonder if there’s a better way. Others have felt the pain of a narcissistic parent or partner and may experience low self-worth, feel betrayed, or even question their reality. Pain from these things is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

Are you finding yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and not sure how to cope? Perhaps you have a natural tendency to please and take care of others, but then find yourself struggling to cope. During my 20 plus years as a therapist, I've helped people with a variety of difficulties, and have developed a special interest in working with those who have a tendency to please and take care of others. I get you! You likely have difficulty saying "no" and end up taking on too much; you may struggle with feeling overwhelmed and stuck, lacking motivation, and likely feeling depressed, lonely, and/or anxious.

Life can present us with many unwanted and unexpected situations. Sometimes, it can be a traumatic situation, or maybe you are dealing with a child who has become withdrawn, not speaking, and is not socializing with the family. Perhaps you have some past trauma that has not been fully explored or resolved, or anxiety about the future. Whatever the circumstances, counseling may be able to help. As an LCSW practicing in Southwest Missouri, I have worked with clients of all ages and with many different issues, including anxiety, depression, and ADHD as well as with patients experiencing past and current trauma.

Sometimes what we KNOW is true does not FEEL true. Your days may involve fighting intrusive thoughts, wrestling with anxiety, or trying to act okay when you feel anything but “fine.” Your mind may feel like the problem right now, but it is a beautifully unique and complex part of you that is capable of wellness. While stress can be minimized, it will never be completely eliminated from our lives. However, our brains can learn to adapt and find safety even in the midst of life's storms. Whether you have trauma symptoms, anxiety, or OCD you can move beyond just surviving. You are capable of thriving.

Depression, anxiety and addiction are often compatriots. They feed off each other and create a sense of hopelessness. Your struggle may be with substances (drugs/food), compulsive acts or obsessive thinking. However, they are often slightly different-shaped pieces to the same puzzle. Additionally, if you experienced trauma in your lifetime, you are even more susceptible to these disorders. Gratefully, there is hope and recovery for them! It is often not easy or quick, but it is doable. "God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless." -- Chester Nimitz, WWII Fleet Admiral.

The trauma changed everything for you - the way you feel, the way you think, the way you live. It changed how you see yourself, others, and the world. It has likely been challenging for you to connect with others and to feel safe. And it is difficult on your own to figure out how to recover, and how to regain what has been lost because of the trauma. Therapy is an opportunity to find a way forward again in a safe and supportive environment. You need a treatment that works, to help you begin to turn your life around. Reach out to schedule a free 15-minute consultation call. You can take the next step in your recovery now.

My goal is to always provide a place of acceptance and safety. I work to empower others to feel a sense of belonging and explore their potential. We are all two sides of the same coin; both strong and vulnerable, confident and insecure, emotional and logical. None of these are more important or valuable than the other, but all are intricate pieces that make up the human experience deserving of a voice and validation.

I have worked in residential settings, helping children and youth deal with trauma. My time working in bereavement has also given me valuable insight into working with grief.

I look forward to working with clients whose life path may have created difficulties for them that has led them not be the best of who they can be. Each individual's path may have been sprinkled with physical or emotional abuse, neglect, assault, grief and loss, domestic violence, marital or parental discord or a myriad of other situations. Sometimes these life paths create in my clients a feeling of hopeless and loss of self-worth, sometimes these path end with someone needing to determine a plan to leave an unsafe living situation. Sometimes these paths lead to turning to substances and illegal drugs to cope with the internal turmoil and pain. It is my privlege to work with clients to help them identify and bring forth the best of who they are and what they want for their life, their family and their future through their own individual strengths.

What type of Springfield 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 Springfield?
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.
