About Me

Welcome to Better Help

Do you need someone to talk to? Are you stressed over the everyday chaos of life? Do you spend a lot of time worrying and feeling anxious? Are you worried about how much you worry? These can be signs of anxiety. At times do you feel hopeless, isolated or not your usual self? Do you feel there is no one you can talk to about your intense or personal feelings? These can be signs of depression. Do you have internal thoughts or triggers about a traumatic event in the past? Does your past trauma cause distress in your current life? These can be signs of traumatic stress. Have you tried to resolve these issues on your own without much success?

I am a good listener. I am passionate about helping people succeed in reaching their personal goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy helping people gain insight and develop new perspectives. My practice focuses on the treatment of Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma. I incorporate Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Exposure techniques into my treatment approach. These are effective methods for treating both anxiety and depressive disorders. I am also trained in EMDR therapy, which is very effective for treating trauma.

Patients often find relief in realizing that their struggles do not own them, and that there are many options available for regaining hope in their lives. I can help you sort out the environmental, biological and circumstantial factors in your life while offering support and care. If any of the above issues resonate with you, we can find a solution that works.

I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker (LSCSW) and have over 15 years of experience working with individuals, children and families. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from Wichita State University, and graduated from Newman University (Wichita, KS) in 2009 with a Master's Degree in Social Work.
