Hoping to be one step closer on a positive path to growth and well-being? As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you reach your true potential and lead the life YOU choose. I work to understand behavior patterns or negative perceptions which may be holding you or your child back from a fulfilling life. If you need extra support working through challenges, or wish to move in a new life direction, I look forward to working with you and your family. Call or e-mail for an individual, couple, or family appointment today.

As a licensed therapist in the State of Missouri, I treat individuals, couples, parents and families in the Central Missouri area. My additional training as an APT Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor, Gottman Trained Marriage Therapist, Mediator, Addiction Specialist and Family Therapist provides a unique combination to serve your family.

I view my work as a therapist as a passion, along with the time I spend with my family, friends and community. I love to go to work every day helping people become happier and more productive. I look forward to working with you and your family.
