I am a therapist licensed in Missouri with experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, and parenting related concerns. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach is primarily person centered, which means I provide my clients with empathy and unconditional positive regard to help facilitate changes they want to make.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
