Unique Populations
To my fellow humans who are LGBTQIA+ and/or BIPOC, I make a promise to you that I will be affirming, inclusive, and encouraging. I see your struggles, I hear your pain, and I want to help you reach your goals. You are invaluable members of society and I will treat you as such!  


I have been working with kids for over a decade. I specialize in child behavior problems, trauma, grief, depression, and anxiety. I absolutely love working with kids and I use play therapy techniques, music, art, and sand tray. I connect quickly with children and am able to provide them with a non-threatening environment to talk about their feelings in age-appropriate ways.


Individuals & Couples

I have specialized training and years of experience in treating issues that arise in relationships. So many relationship problems can be resolved in couples counseling when people learn how to communicate properly, argue appropriately, and enhance intimacy. In relationship counseling, I use a variety of techniques including behavioral therapy, talk therapy, and solution-focused therapy; I will teach you the tools to help you enhance your personal relationships.


I received my Bachelor's of Science in Psychology from the University of Central Missouri in 2008. I earned my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in 2012. I am a fully Licensed Marital and Family Therapist in the state of Missouri.
