Have you felt guilt or shame because life was more challenging than you expected it would be post- adoption ? Have relationships been a struggle? Does someone acting "off" around you fill you with worry? Attachment issues can be a common struggle for those who have been involved in foster care/ adoption . As a fellow adoptee, I too, know the confusion, pain, and feelings a lack of identity and attachment wounds can bring to this family dynamic. Therapy can provide a neutral space to process through those emotions. You can learn skills to confidently handle what life throws at you and take time to heal through the hurt in a healthy way.

I specialize in working with adoption issues and understand the sensitivity and dynamics associated with blended families and foster care involvement.
Life becomes too difficult; you need an objective someone to talk to, listen to your story, and provide encouragement that you can not only survive what you are going through, but work to find purpose and meaning in the midst of the storm. The most important aspect of therapy is the Client-Therapist relationship. Once it is determined that the Client is comfortable with me, then it is a collaborative effort to help facilitate the healing process through the life changes the Client faces. My job is to provide a safe place for change and growth to happen.

I have experienced the joys and pains of life including the adoption journey, addiction in a family member, or just wondering if I am doing life right.
My ideal client is one who is aware that they need to do something different but aren't quite sure what the next step is. This could be a life transition from adolescence to adulthood, or a couple who struggles with communication. It could be more intense like a couple who is in the middle of despair or broken trust, or an individual or child who has experienced something traumatic that has changed their whole world. All these individuals are looking for ways to regain their life and become who they believe themselves to be.

I'm not your typical counselor... You won't find me busy looking at my notes and only paying attention half the time you're talking. My style is very conversational and I'll share about myself any time it's pertinent, or when asked. I don't believe in dragging counseling out because it's expensive so why waste your time and money? You've got a problem so let's get to fixing it! The bottom line is your quality of life: it's not where you want/need it to be, and it's my job to help you improve it. My primary office is in Springfield, MO with a secondary location in Chesterfield, MO a few days a week.

I am offering telemedicine (on-line counseling) during this time of quarantine.

Stepping out to ask for help can be incredibly intimidating and uncomfortable. I know how hard it is to ask for help, but the simple fact that you are looking for help makes you a step closer to healing than you were yesterday. Effective therapy is one that is based on a strong therapeutic relationship built on a mutual goal of healthy living. When emotions become overwhelming, we will work together to overcome struggles. You will never have to go through it alone. Whatever the obstacle ahead of us, as your counselor I will be right by your side every step of the way matching you step for step.

"Currently offering sessions via Telehealth/online as we navigate this new terrain together." Life can sometimes feel overwhelming, and relationships like a constant struggle. We have a knowledge that it wasn’t meant to be this way and feel compelled to take the first steps toward wholeness but sometimes don’t know where to begin. Through compassion and empathy, I partner with clients to begin their healing journey. I seek first to understand their story, providing a safe and secure place to process the pain. It is my core belief that no problem is too messy and no challenging situation is without hope.

Hi, my name is Jen. If you are like the rest of us, I imagine life has been a little chaotic and more uncertain lately. Feeling unsettled and uncertain about the future can create challenges in all areas of our lives. It is completely normal to feel unsettled, but you can learn and practice tools that will help you regain a sense of peace in your life. The two most common questions I get in sessions are: 1) Am I crazy; and 2) Can you really help me? First, you are NOT crazy. Struggles with anxiety and depression are much more common than you think! Second, I can help you, as I have helped many others. Don't hesitate to reach out!
