Hello and welcome to my profile! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Missouri and have been helping individuals seek life solutions for over 10 years. I enjoy helping clients work on a variety of issues but am especially passionate about helping women overcome issues related to anxiety and life changes (relationship, motherhood, menopause, etc).
Methods that I have found particularly effective for clients in therapy include but are not limited to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Exposure and Response Prevention. For couples and relationship therapy I draw from the Gottman Method to guide the progression.
Each client is unique and therapy is planned around the client’s needs and goals. I feel that trust in the therapeutic relationship is the basis for our work together and we will start out investing time to build that relationship.
I am hopeful that through a strong therapeutic alliance and evidence-based methods we can make excellent progress toward your goals. Let’s work together to find joy and value in your life that you never thought possible!

Andrea has been so incredibly helpful to me! It’s been about 5 months since I started speaking with her weekly and I have noticed that I’ve grown a lot. She is so kind and has a lot of helpful strategies to help with anxiety, guilt/shame, and confidence. She has inspired me to really go for the things I want in my life. I highly recommend her!

Andrea is easy to talk to, listens, gives great feedback, makes you feel validated. She gives very helpful suggestions to help me get where I want to be. I feel at ease talking with her about my most pressing issues in my life. I would very much recommend her to anyone.
