More about me
Years in Practice: 5
Hello, and welcome. Seeking help can sometimes feel intimidating and even nerve wracking. I applaud you for taking the first steps of exploring your options so that you can continue to grow and reach your goals. My own goal is to support you along the way, and provide a non-judgmental and compassionate environment to navigate both life's challenges, as well as life's opportunities.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is licensed in the state of Missouri. I am skilled in counseling relating to adjustment issues, stress, anxiety, depression and mood disorders, relationship issues, self-esteem, work/life balance, career challenges, chronic health issues, body image, and LGBTQ+ issues. In my work, I have gained experience working in a variety of settings, including Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Counseling, crisis counseling with a state hotline, ER assessments, and assessments with various age groups in an outpatient mental health center. I describe my approach as eclectic, and I draw from Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral, Narrative, and Family Systems theories to sculpt treatment that is tailored for your own needs and goals. However, no matter the approach, for treatment to be successful, as a client, you need to feel respected and heard in your therapeutic relationship. My cornerstone in practice is unconditional positive regard, empathy, and respect.
Please reach out if you have an interest in working together to see if we are the right fit. Feel free to reach out if you are looking for a time in the evening or weekend that is not listed as available on my calendar. Best wishes on your journey!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
