About me

Hi! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri, and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I earned my Bachelor's Degree from the University of South Florida, and my Master's Degree in Counseling from Florida Gulf Coast University and have been working in the field since 2001. I have worked inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, non-profit agencies, and in private practice.

My experience is extensive, having done much work with couples working to strengthen and preserve their relationship, supported clients who are healing from divorce or other traumatic life events, and worked with individuals who are struggling with depression, anxiety or chronic stress. I have worked with clients who have a significant mental health diagnosis, as well as individuals who are in crisis.

You will find me to be compassionate and thoughtful as we work together to sort through your issues and experiences in order to gain a healthy perspective and healing. Please message me if you're interested in talking before setting up a session.

Bonnie is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met! She is patient, kind and helpful in all situations. I believe her suggestions and ideas come from her years of experience. I always felt safe and comfortable sharing with her. When I sent her any correspondence she was always quick to respond, even beyond normal hours. I feel like she is a dear friend always ready to listen and suggest ideas for any circumstance. I'm very thankful that God put her in my path. My life will be better because of her. God bless you Bonnie!
