Life experiences and my own healing journey motivated me to earn a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling degree from Missouri State University in 2022. As a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor, I work with individuals (teens and adults), couples, and groups to promote self-understanding, facilitate healing, and in creating the life each person wishes to live. I approach interactions with openness, curiosity, and compassion and strive to create a secure therapeutic relationship with empathy, respect, and acceptance.
It is an honor to walk with someone as they face past hurts, find the courage to heal, and become empowered to create the life they desire. Every human being is unique. Through collaboration with each person, I tailor strategies for healing and growth that include person-centered, trauma-informed, cognitive and behavioral, solution-focused, existential, somatic, and EMDR approaches. Whether you are facing challenges, struggling with mental health, having relationship difficulties, or desiring to make life changes, I believe we can work together to find solutions that work best for you.
