About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Kansas with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges and life transitions. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I work with couples and parents through difficult points in their relationships . I have experience working with divorced parents to navigate the emotional toll it can take on the entire family system. I have helped many divorced parents work together to be the best coparents they can be to provide the best parenting experience for their children.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating all people with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
