I am here to walk with you on your journey, without judgment, and with understanding. I have worked for many years with adults, youth, and children. My office is warm and inviting and I look forward to working with you with individual, family, play, or group therapies. I also facilitate supervision for LPC's. I have worked in public schools, non-profit, church, and private settings. Call me today. I look forward to meeting you.
I believe in you. All of us have moments in our lives when we do not know how to put the pieces together. I can facilitate therapy through play, narrative, and psycho-educational strategies. I enjoy using Adlerian and Person-Centered, strengths based theories. You are a worthy person.
I have worked with many different cultures. I understand struggles in education (as a teacher and as a student), struggles with working through questions regarding faith (as a active leader and participant in religious settings), and concerns families have as they seek the best for their children and relationships. Let me work with you here in the offices of The Collaborative in St Peters.

Counseling for wellness and wisdom. That’s my mission. My goal as a counselor is to earn your trust and accept an invitation into your complex and dynamic world. My sincere hope is I may offer you the support you are seeking to find peace. If you are visiting The Collaborative’s website, chances are you sense, or maybe even know, something is not quite right in your life. Are you personally struggling and haven’t found a solution or a way to move forward? Perhaps, your child or someone else you care deeply for is struggling, and you are unsure of how to help him or her. Maybe you are completely comfortable asking for help, but this whole process is new and uncomfortable for you. Sometimes the hardest part of healing is reaching out for help. Not to worry. When you are ready to take the next step and explore what is begging to be addressed, I am prepared to walk beside you. Acknowledging the difficulties in our lives takes courage and insight. You are not alone, and you deserve to find contentment.

Life is hard and unpredictable, and we all have struggles within ourselves, with relationships, and with directions in life. As a result, we may experience fear, sadness, lack of motivation, or simply feeling lost. We all face challenges in our lives, and the recognition of our shared human condition is what motivated me to become a counselor. I bring a wealth of life and professional experiences to the counseling practice with a 30-year career in biotech and business. I believe my life experiences as a parent, professional, and immigrant afford me the broad perspectives to connect with clients and to facilitate personal growth.

I recognize that our self-concept, relationships and work are all intricately connected. Challenges in any of these areas can throw us off balance. Therefore, I employ a holistic approach toward counseling, not only addressing the internal symptoms but also focusing on the influences of the contextual and relational networks within the environment.

 I work with clients who are dissatisfied with where they are personally or professionally. This may include dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, or grieving the loss of loved ones. My goal is to provide an environment that allows clients to reflect, to have meaningful engagement with oneself and with others, to heal, to grow and to flourish.

As a therapist, my main focus is to care for the concerns of the client's heart. I believe that we are made for connection and attachment. When relationships have been harmed or trauma has occurred, there is a fracture, wound or scar. This can run deep and needs to be treated with tenderness and understanding. Those who have experienced trauma may not understand the toll it has done to the brain, body, heart, soul or voice. I have the privilege of educating and finding therapeutic ways in which the client can heal. It is a true honor to walk alongside someone while they find their way towards healing and wholeness.

I have worked with families, individuals and children for more than 15 years. My specialty is trauma, attachment and connection. I have the honor of serving first responders and those dear to them. I am a part of serving and caring for First Responders through the Crisis Intervention Team Missouri Council.
