About me

I am licensed in Missouri with 24 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, anger management, motivation, self esteem, confidence and a variety of mental health conditions. I work with both adults and adolescents and I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment or loss of confidentiality. The only time that confidentiality will be broken is if you are becoming a danger to yourself or others. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Davy is a straight shooter and will tell you how it is. If you’re on the pity train, she’ll let you know. I love that about her! I’m a tough love kind of person, so Davy is a great fit for me.

Davalene is amazing. While working with her for several months I was able to understand myself and my emotions so much better. She listens and asks the questions to really get to the core of your emotions and I feel better than I have in years after talking through some of my past with her. She’s easy to open up to and I really struggle with that sometimes. She has given me the tools and knowledge for me to continue to grow as a person. Thank you Davy.
