My Story

Trusted Counselor

Over the last 20 years I have enjoyed meeting and working with people in their homes not only as a therapist but a parent educator, and advocate. It has been my experience that by meeting in the comfort of their own home people feel more encouraged to change when they can talk authentically with someone who actively listens to their concerns and issues utilizing reflective strategies. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both Missouri and Kansas a Missouri Associate Alcohol Drug Counselor II. 
I have worked with children as young as three, teens and adults mostly utilizing Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I am also a Licensed Minister working with families within the church who have dealt with family loss, divorce, empty nest as well as their daily Christian walk.
