The clients I serve are often at a crossroads in their life story and unsure of how to close one chapter and begin anew. Clients I enjoy working with recognize that counseling continues outside of the session in self reflection, exploring behavior change, and shifting how we think and relate to ourselves. I find that counseling helps meet goals and needs as diverse as the client, and sometimes goals arise throughout the course of the relationship. No one needs a "good reason" to come to counseling, for the desire to reach out and try will always be sufficient.

When a clinician is asked what their specialty is, they often focus on specific diagnoses. Although helpful, I believe you are so much more than a diagnosis or collection of symptoms. I think it's important to respect the complicated nature of who we are and the lives we lead. It's about understanding why you are struggling and changing what is not working for you. I think that issues or problems need to be handled with curiosity and not judgement. Only then can we focus on what feels right for you and help you have those things in your life. I am known for my work with adolescents, couples, and individuals with profound distress.

Are you experiencing moments of change? Is this a time in your life when that change is bringing to the foreground feelings of helplessness, hopelessness? Life can get really overwhelming at times. Those times can make us feel powerless and out of control. Sometimes the added presence of an Anxiety, Depression or Bipolar disorder can make it all the more challenging. You do not have to struggle alone. I believe times of loss and change can bring about self-awareness and healing. And that change is an opportunity to cultivate compassion and loving kindness towards ourselves and others.

Do thoughts about food or your body dominate your day? Do you feel out of control around food and exercise? It can feel like you aren’t even really sure who you are outside of these thoughts. You are told over and over that success, either in your sport, dating, or in life, are tied to the size of your body. That voice inside screaming that we are "not good enough" yet also "too much" for the people around us is loud. The expectation of perfection can get in the way of even trying. You feel alone and like nobody else understands. But here's the thing...you aren't alone. And you deserve a life without all of that.

Empowering clients to engage the world through their unique strengths is key to my work. Often this process involves working through the impact of loss, pain, depression, or trauma in a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship. My hope is that our work together can reignite those things that bring you the most joy and life. I have worked extensively with women and oppressed groups, and much of my experience is with spiritual wounding. My work is informed by humanistic and existential perspectives of psychotherapy, and I often incorporate the use of mindfulness techniques. I am also trained in EMDR therapy.

Entering into therapy is difficult - it is important to find a therapist with whom you connect. I provide a free phone consultation and a half price first session, so we can decide if we are a good fit. I work best with clients who are motivated to begin the explorative process towards healing. I seek to honor the vulnerability required to make changes in one's life by listening without judgment and growing to understand the individual's experiences.

Psychodynamic therapy in Downtown, Saint Louis, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict.
