About me

I am licensed in Missouri with 40 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with trauma and abuse & coping with grief and loss. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

I approach counseling with respect, sensitivity and the knowledge that individuals are open to change. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have experience with a variety of individuals experiencing trauma, anxiety, relational concerns, grief and many other distresses. As an advocate and change agent, I am passionate about assisting individuals in making good decisions for their future without the fear of being judged.

My therapy style is listening and empowering individuals to feel open to discuss in-depth problems which can make profound differences in their lives.

I have a Doctorate Degree of Philosophy in Christian Education from Anchor Theological Seminary and Bible Institute. I was the Dean of Students for the School of Ministry and Leadership at my church. As a woman of faith, I can provide guidance in spiritual matters.

When life seems overwhelming and your thoughts become unmanageable, it is time for you to get counseling to unravel your feelings. Please, let me be the one to help you.
