I am a licensed professional counselor, licensed in Missouri with over 5 years of experience working as a counselor and 20 in other helping professions. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, autism, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical, emotional and sexual trauma or abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating people with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic solution-focused, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I would be my honor to help support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I had a different therapist first and didn’t realize how bad they were. She is amazing, thoughtful, and easy to talk to. She makes therapy a breeze and as comfortable as possible. Very great full for her!

Tammy has reached out to me and has suggested things to help me not just listen to what all my problems are but find solutions.
