I am an experienced therapist with a passion for helping individual adults, children and adolescents cope with trauma experiences, anxiety, depression, and generalized stress. my work helps to identify and clear out causes of negative belief systems, inner child work, and events that lead to increasing symptoms of anxiety, depression, low self-worth, and more. I am working on dual licensure in Missouri, but am currently single licensed in Kansas as a Clinical Professional Counselor. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCPT), and currently completing my Play Therapy certification.

I believe that all humans have the capacity to navigate and negotiate meaningful resources to sustain and heal their well-being. I don't expect my clients to trust me, but I encourage my clients to trust themselves and the hard work they put in to cope using the skills I provide in our sessions. Therapy is a process and takes time, so being gentle, patient, and kind to self is an important parallel process of healing. It is my goal to get my clients to a place of having an established relationship where there are feelings of being heard, supported, safe, and enhancing the development of coping skills. I'm here to walk through this journey with my clients, maintain confidentiality, provide possibilities and hope. Being aware and calling for help is not easy, but is the first step to self-growth. I meet the client where they're at and look forward to providing you a space to feel heard. Please call me or text me if interested.
