I am a licensed professional counseling in Missouri with 8 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, addiction issues, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and direct. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, honesty, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, and solution-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
