I am a professional counselor licensed in Missouri with thirteen years' combined experience in the mental health field. For the past 5 years I have worked almost exclusively with children and teens who have experienced abusive trauma, treating anger, depression, anxiety and PTSD symptoms that often accompany it. In addition, I have educated and supported adults in addiction recovery, survivors of domestic violence, and parents of traumatized children.
My counseling style is warm and collaborative. I believe in unconditional positive regard and a shared partnership in identifying treatment goals and steps to obtain them. I combine elements of CBT, EMDR, and DBT therapies as well as practical, mindful solutions that can easily be incorporated into our daily lives. Each client-counselor relationship is as unique as the people in them; as our conversation evolves, I will customize my approach to meet your individual needs. You are worth more than one-size-fits-all treatment.
Starting therapy with someone new can be daunting, whether it's your first time to counseling or not. I'm so glad you've decided to invest in your mental and emotional health, because YOU MATTER!
I look forward to getting to know you better. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to help you find the answers you seek.
