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.

Davalene is helping me work through a challenging time in my life and giving me tools including various worksheets to help me along the way as well as great ideas for resources outside of her guidance and better help. I really appreciate our video calls, and she makes me feel comfortable sharing information. She igs a great listener too. I'm so thankful that my friend suggested using better help to find a therapist.
