The life you want is possible. As a counselor, I want to encourage you to pursue the things you really want in life and help you avoid the patterns that keep you from that pursuit.
I use a combination of a person centered approach that makes you the leader of your life, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which helps you start acting in the ways you want. Growth and change happen at the pace that you want and that feels safe for you. I have a wide knowledge base with many techniques and I am confident that I can find a tool that works for you.
Experience and training
I have my Master of Arts in Counseling with Mental Health Emphasis from UMKC. I work with a wide variety of clients and client concerns which include: anxiety, depression, substance use, life transitions, traumatic event processing, interpersonal relationship issues, developmental disorders, and general stress and growth.
