As a mental health therapist for over a decade, I've committed my life to helping others reach their fullest potential. What can I do to help you?
Ever since I was 15 years old, I knew I wanted to be a therapist. "To drink coffee and talk to people all day" was my career goal from the very beginning. Helping others has always been my passion so it was a natural process for me to enter this field. I earned my Master's of Education in Counseling from the University of Missouri - St. Louis in 2012. I've owned my own practice since 2017.
In my early years of counseling, I worked for an agency performing substance abuse counseling for adolescents. I then moved on to another non-for-profit agency performing more generalized mental health therapy. My time working for these agencies was essential to grow my skills as a counselor and hone my areas of expertise.
In 2016, I became a trauma-informed and certified EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapist. This specific therapy allows me to use a wonderful tool with individuals who are dealing with a multitude of trauma related issues. Alongside, EMDR therapy I also use an array of other therapy modalities, including CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and Mindfulness Based therapy.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Missouri and Colorado. If you live in either state and are interested in setting up a time to meet, call or message me today. I'll be sure the coffee stays warm for you!
