I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed in Missouri. Though I've been licensed for five years, I have a nearly ten years of experience working with people in a therapeutic capacity. I've had the opportunity to work with clients facing an array of challenges, including overwhelming stress, divorce, parenting challenges, housing or food insecurity, depression, and anxiety. I also have experience working with survivors of childhood abuse (physical, sexual, and emotional), domestic violence, and sexual assault.
I tend to be pretty laid-back during counseling sessions and my main focus is giving you space to talk through whatever is on your mind. The space I hold for you will be open-minded, non-judgmental, and warm. I'm primarily a client-centered therapist, so I mainly want to hear from you. However, I do incorporate elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy so that you have something concrete to focus on, if you want it. I believe that clients deserve the right to be a collaborator in the therapeutic process, so I'll want to hear from you what's working, what isn't, what you like, and what you don't. I'm eager to partner with you.
If this sounds like a good fit for you - please reach out! I look forward to working with you!

Mandy has been amazing to work with so far. I have only had one visit but she was extremely personable and helped make the process go smoothly!
Mandy has been great about helping me learn communication skills and also positive coping mechanisms. She is an amazing listener who makes me feel very comfortable speaking about all of my issues or struggles no matter how minor or major I might think they are. Mandy was a great fit for me and I am very grateful for all her help. I was very worried to start this process as I had never had therapy before, but I am starting to get to the point that I am looking forward to them. I would recommend Mandy to anyone!
My first success with therapy all thanks to Mandy! I look forward to talking to her each time and value her professionalism. She is Very empathetic and helpful.
