I hold a Master’s degree in Counseling and am licensed as a professional counselor in the State of Missouri. I have a private practice in the midtown area of Kansas City. I am an EMDR Certified Therapist.

I believe that in therapy a counselor should be, first and foremost, someone who is a caring, empathetic, non-judgmental listener. This is someone who will really hear what you are sharing and try to understand your concerns from your point of view. Developing a strong therapeutic relationship is key to the work we do together and several benefits flow from that. First of all, a positive therapeutic relationship provides you with a safe and supportive environment which allows you to explore difficulties you may be experiencing. Secondly, the relationship allows you the space and caring support to increase self-awareness, develop insight, and consider the changes you want to make in your life. Further, our therapeutic work will be a collaboration between me, as the counselor, and you, with your story providing the framework and direction for you explorations and discoveries.

I provide mental health counseling to individual adults (age range 18 and older). I use tools that are supported by current research, including mindfulness practice and cognitive strategies, to help you create and sustain healthy change. I have recently completed the requirements for EMDR certification. I completed a 2-year clinical fellowship at MOCSA (Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault), providing individual therapy and group therapy to survivors of sexual assault/abuse or childhood sexual abuse.

My practice specialties include: helping those who are facing life transitions, helping those who are struggling with weight management/healthy body image issues, and helping those who have been affected by childhood or other trauma and who may benefit from EMDR therapy.
