I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in practice for more than a decade. I am certified in EMDR and Addiction Therapy. Previously, I worked in an inpatient psychiatric hospital working directly with people affected by serious mental illness, psychosis, suicidal ideation/attempts and chemical dependency/psychiatric diagnosis.  I also worked in outpatient (IOP) helping people who were newly sober acquire the skills to work on their recovery and reintegrate into life.

I am a PLPC in the state of Missouri. I have experience working with eating disorders, chronic mental illnesses, comorbidities, and complex trauma. I am trained in EMDR, which is a highly effective trauma treatment. My approach to the therapy process begins with a mindset that safety and connection are the most important aspects of any healing relationship, including the relationship you continually develop with yourself. I believe that you have an amazing potential for self-healing. Together, we can work through the painful emotions and internalized beliefs so that you may connect, rediscover, and return to your unique and wonderful self. I look forward to meeting you, and hope to walk with you on your healing journey.


I am a licensed professional counselor, and a Certified EMDR therapist, and have worked with a diverse clientele. I specialize in: relationship issues, anxiety, loss, life transitions, low self-esteem, family conflict, and trauma. Living through difficult experiences often leads to feelings of disconnection. I can help you find connection and balance. Working with me can help you heal from your past, feel more connected, balanced, and secure. Call or click below to reach out today.
