Announcement icon At this time our services related to children are limited in our effort to maintain social distancing and protection of our clients.
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 which may be holding you or your child back from a fulfilling life. When therapy is needed it is this week not weeks after you call. ONE appointment is available DAILY for emergency situations. 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.
