My passion is helping women with trauma experiences to live a healthier, holistic life. My therapeutic foundation began while working with women that struggled with substance use issues. Throughout my work with them, I discovered that many of the women experienced trauma in their childhood, were currently experiencing trauma responses and living in survival mode every day.
This prompted me to gain more knowledge and skills so I could effectively help other women. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2009, became fully licensed in 2011 as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in both the states of Missouri and Kansas.
I am skilled in CBT and DBT therapy modalities. I practice from a place of authentic and genuine interactions to help women heal and feel safe in the process. I am a great listener and ready to help you along your journey. I also incorporate movement based therapy into our sessions to help release any unresolved trauma.
