I know how difficult it can be dealing with depression, anxiety, and trauma. I have years of experience in treating these issues using evidenced-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have almost 15 years of experience in treating a variety of concerns, including suicidal thoughts, self-harming behavior, relationship problems, and gender and sexual identity issues. I take a holistic, collaborative approach and view my clients as partners in our work together. I offer a non-judgmental perspective and can provide training in emotion regulation, mindfulness, and interpersonal skills or just be a neutral sounding board. My goal for all of my clients is that they discover a life than is meaningful and worth living. I look forward to the chance to work with you and help you reach your goals. I am also a certified yoga instructor and enjoy hiking and running. I am a parent of a young child and active in animal rescue work. Reading is another of my favorite pastimes and I am happy to suggest books or authors that may be helpful to a particular client's situation. Please contact me before scheduling a live session as my availability can change quickly and not be up to date.

My belief in the resilience of the human spirit inspired me to become a professional counselor 20 years ago. I have clinical experience in every level of behavioral healthcare and I have advanced training and practice in understanding how the early experience of trauma impacts a developing child’s brain. I am motivated by the power of trauma sensitive treatment to assist my clients in growth and healing. My general approach to therapy is one of a partnership of experts. No one has more expertise than you do on your own experience. I have training and expertise that I can offer to hopefully deepen your understanding, provide new perspectives, and facilitate change. Most importantly, it's my privilege and commitment to provide an environment of unconditional acceptance and respect for your thoughts and values. I am comfortable with any pace of therapy and I believe that I should be pushing you a little bit harder than you are pushing yourself—pushing you forward, never pushing you down. I have extensive experience in working with families formed from adoption and foster care. I am affirming of all sexual and gender identities, all faiths and all religions. I utilize several clinical modalities including Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavior therapy, Trust-Based Relational Intervention therapy, Solution-Focused therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I enjoy counseling with adults, couples, families, and children. I have extensive experience in crisis intervention and crisis stabilization and am comfortable supporting individuals with symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma, anger management, difficulty in relationships, parenting, career/employment stress, substance use and stress management. I am passionate about connecting with vulnerable individuals in our community to offer hope and eliminating the stigma of illness and addiction.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Missouri with 14 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients to address issues relating to depression, anxiety, life changes, relationship issues, and career challenges. Are you feeling: Apathetic? Confused? Tired, worn out? Misunderstood by others and yourself? See life as a bunch of "puzzle pieces"? If you feel any of these emotions, then it's time to make a change. I would be honored to help you take those "puzzle pieces" and empower you to create the mosaic masterpiece you are so ready to see manifest. In my role as a therapist, I am here to help my clients develop healthy ways of thinking about and dealing with the issues you have mentioned. It doesn’t necessarily mean that your circumstance will change, but how you view your circumstances will be crucial in the therapeutic process. I believe in meeting my clients where they are, which means finding out from the client what they believe their needs are and what they would like to focus on at this time. I also believe that clients should be able “pivot”, should their needs change during the course of therapy. The reason being is life is full of ebbs and flow and ever-changing. As situations and circumstances change, so do the needs of the client. The relationship between the client and the therapist is a crucial component to having a successful therapeutic process. As you take this step towards reclaiming and recreating the life you want, you should have someone you trust to work with you in getting your needs met. I am honored and humbled to walk on this journey with you!

4 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I graduated with my undergraduate degree in psychology and my master’s degree in professional counseling, both from Lindenwood University. In my professional career, prior to being a therapist, I worked in the fields of vocational rehabilitation, pain management, drug and alcohol addiction, and applied behavior analysis. My practicum for my Master’s degree was completed at Northwest High School, where I held group sessions for at-risk youth and provided individual crisis counseling to students. I was a professor of undergraduate introductory psychology at Jefferson College and continue to see clients through my private practice. Our problems, concerns and struggles in life often cannot be reduced to a simple diagnosis. As human beings navigating a constantly evolving and sometimes difficult world, we are accumulations of our experiences, patterns, skills, and desires. We sometimes need to enhance our abilities to cope or gain insight through seeing a different perspective, but we all have the innate ability to grow and heal ourselves. As a therapist, my goal is to assist you in attaining your desired outcomes and reaching a point of contentment in your life. I work with a variety of individuals in an effort to help them sort through their thoughts, identify their feelings, and honor their present experience. I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, incorporating person-centered and solution-focused models, as well as Gestalt’s techniques, and ACT to empower and challenge my clients to reach their goals. While the needs that I see are varied, acceptance, understanding, and intentional focus on growth make my approach universally applicable. I hope that my studies and passion can help you on your journey to attain the calm, light, and fulfilling life we all work for and deserve. Take care and be well!

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a North Lilbourn counselor?

Before seeing your North Lilbourn therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in North Lilbourn.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A North Lilbourn licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a North Lilbourn counselor can be dependent on your process.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in North Lilbourn, Missouri can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
