YOUR JOURNEY STARTS HERE
Everyone has a story, and you are the expert of your own. It is my goal to provide a safe and warm environment in which you experience unconditional acceptance, empathy and understanding. Each client is treated uniquely with an individualized treatment plan.
As a counselor, it is my desire to help you through your struggles of life. It is a passion of mine to help you process, understand and walk through the good and the bad you have experienced. My heart is to help you see all that your life can be and help you reach the goals to achieve it.
Finding a counselor that is the right fit for you is an important process. You deserve to experience freedom and wholeness. It would be an honor to be a part of your journey.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Missouri. I earned my B.S. in Psychology from College of the Ozarks and my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Evangel University.
I am a member of the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc.
Throughout my experience, I have worked in a university counseling center and community behavioral health center. In the winters of 2018 and 2019, I had the honor of traveling to Kenya to provide trauma therapy at a number of facilities including an orphanage, substance abuse rehab home, and a high school.
Over the last two years and through the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been working with a community mental health center. In the summer of 2021, I moved to Kansas City to begin my transition into private practice. In this change of pace, it is my goal to meet my clients at a deeper level and be able to provide a wider range of services.
With the goal to meet my clients in an open and supportive way, I provide therapy through a variety of approaches. I believe in meeting each client where they are in life. I, most often, use a blend of psychodynamic, person-centered, Gestalt, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and narrative therapy. It is my heart to learn each client and tailor each session specifically with them in mind. I believe a collaborative therapeutic relationship between the client and clinician will always offer the best results.
My areas of expertise include trauma, PTSD, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, personality disorders and relationship struggles. In addition, I have experience in working with mood disorders, dissociative disorders, self-esteem, grief, substance use, and life transitions.
I provide individual therapy for adolescents (14+) and adults.
