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.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
- Parenting issues
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Eating disorders, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder

Harriet and I worked through some trauma I had in regards to a past relationship. She really allowed me to go at my pace and helped me re-frame my thoughts and become excited for the future. I cannot express how valuable the time I spent with Harriet was, and I am just so glad I decided to finally start taking time for myself.
Harriet has helped me to see what is really happening in my life and is helping me to deal with the issues that I'm dealing with currently. While I've only been in counseling a few weeks, I can already tell a difference in how I'm approaching situations in my life. She's been incredibly helpful.
Harriet is a wise and thoughtful counselor. She gives me a good perspective on things and is straightforward and down to earth. I appreciate her insights and suggestions very much.
I’ve only had a few sessions but it is really helpful. I have been given techniques that actually work in relaxing me. I don’t feel pushed to talk and for the first time in a long time.
Harriet has been fantastic so far. She has been incredibly supportive and most of all she understands how to help me through my issues. Would highly recommend her and this service.

Harriet is very easy to talk to and able to steer conversations towards the stuff that matters. I have enjoyed my sessions with her thus far and have felt comfortable opening up due to her compassionate and open manner of communication. Highly recommend!
She has been a life line for me. I can’t say how much I appreciate the response time, the various ways to connect, and the communication I’ve had with her. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to have a counselor like Harriet.
