Kids just want to be heard. I empower my clients to feel comfortable opening up to tell their side of the story so I can help them to improve daily life. I have been in the field of education for 20 years (elementary/middle school teacher and current school counselor) and have learned how to build relationships with my students/clients that are comfortable and trusting. A trusting relationship is where change starts to happen! Parents are included in the process of therapy in order to have a full circle approach to tackling the child 's biggest challenges. My focus is on children , adolescents and young adult age groups.

As a Registered Play Therapist, my focus is on providing a safe, trusting adult for the child to work through the issue that has brought them to my office.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I bring 22 years of clinical experience to my private practice. I have been fortunate to work in a variety of settings as a clinician and supervisor, including non-profit mental health agencies, private practice settings, and for the last 8 years as the Lead Education Support Counselor in a school setting. This experience has allowed me to have a better understanding of the challenges in both the home and school settings when children are struggling. I use a variety of clinical interventions and never lose focus on the importance of building a strong relationship with my clients.

Angie has been an Elementary School Counselor for 16 years. Previously, she worked with at-risk and abused children and their families at the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery. She specializes in Play Therapy techniques and believes children heal through play. She truely feels that the relationship built between a therapist, client and the family is paramount in helping clients feel safe enough to share their struggles. When things are too painful or difficult to explain, play is a safe way to distance yourself from the situation and begin to learn coping skills and move toward healing.

Being a mom is agonizing when your child ’s struggling. You’ve done your best and don’t know what else to do. Love mixes with pain and it feels like your heart is breaking. Sometimes kids get clinging, tearful and whiny. Sometimes they get rude and disrespectful. Sometimes they meltdown because they can’t hold it together. Sometimes they’re anxious and sometimes they’re depressed. Whatever you’re facing, it’s hard. I remember. I’m a mom. I got the looks, the unkind remarks in the grocery store. It hurt. There were times when I lost my temper and felt the mom guilt. And I discovered a way to alter the course of our story for good.

I believe children have an innate ability to grow in a positive direction. The child -therapist relationship is the element that encourages healing, where the child feels safe, supported, and is able to make those changes that lead to growth through exploring self (experiences, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors). When we meet a child 's need, rather than focus on the behavior, we begin to deal with the cause, not the symptom. I focus on possibilities, strengths, and value differences through direct and indirect practices.
