I am a professional counselor licensed in Missouri with over 7 years experience working as a counselor and an additional 6 years working in case management for people with a wide range of mental and emotional health concerns. For the past 5 years I have worked almost exclusively with children and teens who have experienced abusive trauma, treating anger, depression, anxiety and PTSD symptoms that often accompany it. In addition, I have educated adults overcoming addictions, survivors of domestic violence, and parents of traumatized children.
My counseling style is warm and collaborative. I believe in unconditional positive regard and a shared partnership in identifying treatment goals and steps to obtain them. I combine elements of CBT, EMDR, and DBT therapies as well as practical, mindful solutions that can easily be incorporated into our daily lives. Each client-counselor relationship is as unique as the people in them; as our conversations evolve, I will customize my approach to meet your individual needs. You are worth more than one-size-fits-all treatment.
Opening yourself up to someone new can be intimidating, whether or not it's your first time to couples' counseling. I'm so glad you've decided to invest in the health of your relationship.
I look forward to getting to know you both better. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to help you find the answers you seek.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse

I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Eating disorders, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder

We have been chatting with Harriet for a few weeks and we had our first phone session today. She gave us many strategies to get us started on our journey to repair our marriage and we both like her very much. We are excited to see what we can gain from our sessions with her.
Harriet has been amazing at supporting me through a hard point in my life. I messed up and negatively affected those around me. Harriet was professional and supportive. She never made me feel like I was a bad person. Thanks Harriet for helping me in my time of need.
Harriet is very knowledgeable, professional, and patient. She has helped me and my partner work through several issues that has made us better. She has provided tools that help when crisis occurs. I highly recommend Harriet.
We presented her with a very complex situation that she had no experience with. She is dealing with it beautifully and we feel very understood and taken care of.
