Something as easy as typing in “find a therapist” can actually be a very daunting process once you hit “search”. Isn’t that much of life, though, that what is seemingly simple, can, in fact, feel extremely difficult? If you’ve become immobile because your reality is too heavy to carry alone, or you’ve tried every avenue and it’s just been unsuccessful time and time again, seeing the right therapist could be the gateway to your new happiness. If you were to stand with your nose up to a painting, your level of clarity to see the whole picture would not match what it could be if you were standing a few feet back. A therapist is just that, someone to help you reflect and interpret a familiar scenario with a whole new perspective. 

I have a mixed approach to therapy, focused but not limited to those dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, singleness, career growth or change, college and career readiness, and family roles.

For the past seven years, I have been a school counselor and have worked with many adolescents dealing with behavioral and psychological concerns. I have my B.A. in Communications from John Carroll University, an M.A. in School Counseling from Lindenwood University, and an Educational Doctoral Degree in Teacher Leadership from Maryville University in St. Louis. I’m a mom of two girls, a wife, and a Christian, with an open and non-judgmental approach to meeting you exactly where you’re at, for exactly who you are, and for whom you’re aiming to be.
