As the sixth generation of my family to live in Howell County, I understand how foreign the concept of counseling may be to some people. Yet, as an Ozarker, I also understand the wit, humor, passion and intelligence of the people of this area, and I combine these traits with formal training and natural curiosity about people to create space for my clients to go through the healing process. Native Ozarker or not, it is my belief that everyone, at some point in their lives, will experience trauma, loss, or mental illness that is treatable through therapy.

For the past 28 years, I have truly enjoyed helping individuals who really want to get well and are willing to work hard to achieve full recovery. I Have a Heart for helping Trauma Victims of all ages get to the root of the pain that keeps them stuck in their lives and relationships. Victims of Trauma often spend a lifetime reenacting their trauma in one relationship after another, until they finally give up on trying to "get it right".

I believe that all individuals will encounter a time in their lives when they will be facing some form of hardship, conflict, or distress. The ability for someone to recognize that they cannot go it alone and need a partner to assist them in navigating life situations is where I come into play. I believe that individuals can make the changes necessary in their lives with the proper supports and skills provided through counseling. Individuals who are ready to put in the work needed to navigate this life are the ones who will succeed.

I enjoy helping people overcome the sexual and emotional hurdles that hold them back -- sex addiction, porn/fantasy addiction, infidelity/betrayal, body image issues, sexual abuse , spiritual guilt, low self-esteem, lack of sexual confidence, family of origin issues, trust issues, etc. I believe EVERYONE deserves to be a sexually connected, sexually satisfied partner. Healthy sexual relationships can heal a multitude of wounds and bond a couple together in an incredibly synergistic way if they are both willing to do the work to overcome their own fears, anxieties, hurts, and hang-ups.

You have a story. A very important and unique story. Sometimes your story keeps you stuck. It keeps you from being the best version of yourself. If your story involves trauma whether from sexual abuse , divorce as an adult or child, physical or verbal abuse, relationship conflict, boundary confusion, religious confusion, natural disasters, accidents, etc, I can help you reprocess these memories and the negative things that you tell yourself. It takes a lot of strength to reach out and ask for help however, I will provide you a safe space to do just that.

We have advanced certification in working with sex addicts, partners, and sexual abuse survivors.
Healthy sexuality is our objective in sexual addiction. Sex is an integral and balanced part of life experience. Sexual behaviors become problematic when they violate vows and values, are dishonest, harmful to others, put you at risk, diminishes your joy in life, act as a barrier filled with shame, self-contempt, and isolation. Sexual health creates intimacy and closeness, characterized by trust, respect, joy and safety. Sexual health can be achieved by sex addicts in recovery. The trauma and addiction model identifies the trauma and internal system that underwrites addiction and does not view problematic behavior as moral failure.

Trauma changes things - the way you feel and think about yourself, others, and the world. I can help you address your trauma-related complaints and have extensive training and experience treating childhood abuse (e.g. emotional, sexual, physical), sexual assault /rape, combat, motor vehicle accidents, etc. I completed a clinical internship and worked for 4+ years at the Veterans Affairs and believe that every person deserves the highest quality mental health treatment. I offer weekly appointments and intensive PTSD care (ranging from 3-5x per week) that can be completed in as little as 2-4 weeks. This program may be right for you.

There are several reasons why people feel stuck in their life story that prevent them from growing into the person they want to become... A past that continues to return to the present, patterns that are unbreakable alone, major life changes, uncontrollable circumstances, feelings of shame - the list goes on. I love working with clients looking to improve themselves, their relationships, and learn to face their struggles.

Sometimes you need space that is only for you. Space for your feelings to be big, raw, and unedited while you sort through them without judgement from yourself or anyone else. Whether the issue is depression, anxiety, trauma, a life transition, relationship issues, parenting issues, sexuality/LGBTQ issues, religious abuse, or a need for personal growth, counseling can create a safe space to be authentically yourself as you sort things out.

Everyone is unique, and I embrace that uniqueness by tailoring therapy to each client. I provide therapy within a safe and judgement-free environment. As a Brainspotting (BSP) therapist, I specialize in treating emotional trauma. Trauma is especially personal, and its resulting fear, anger, stress, and depression can often be severe. I help rebuild emotional strength and stability by focusing on these feelings, and addressing their source. In addition to Brainspotting therapy, I incorporate proven mental and behavioral therapeutic techniques, including EMDR therapy and biofeedback therapy.

If hopelessness, loneliness, fear, anger, and despair are a part of your regular experience, there is help. Trauma and narcissistic abuse survivors often feel isolated and it is my heart to offer support to those individuals who are walking through healing and towards wholeness. Many people live their daily lives carrying these heavy burdens all alone. Sometimes marriage problems or recovery issues seem overwhelming, but you do NOT have to accept that as normal living. I am a specialist in life recovery.
