I am a licensed specialist clinical social worker in Kansas with over 24 years of experience working with families, children and Veterans. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and parenting problems . I also helped many people who have experienced PTSD and adjustment to sight loss.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered and mindfulness therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
