About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 10 years of professional work experience. In addition to a Master of Social Work from the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU), I have a Graduate Certificate (specialty) in Military Social Work (also from MU). I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, relationship issues, and in helping military service personnel, and their families, better manage Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and the stress of military life. I am also a Certified Behavioral Health Consultant, qualified to provide help to clients whose physical health is being negatively impacted by their behavior/s and/or mental health. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage! I am proud of you for getting started!
