About me

I am a licensed professional counselor located near the Kansas City Metro area. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including alcohol and drug use/misuse issues, especially with issues with opioids, anxiety, BDSM and fetish issues, sexual identity and reassignment issues, PTSD and trauma issues, strengthening coping skills, and those with cancer and with end of life issues.

My counseling style is empathic and open minded. I believe in treating everyone with respect and I am eager to learn who you are. My counseling style favors a client centered solutions based focus. I will use whatever style is needed to meet your needs as I am open to facilitating the changes you wish to make in your life to give the meaning you are searching for. My job is to hold the mirror so you can see the real you and help you become the person you have inside.

Let's begin this journey together!
