Marriage & Family Therapists work with individuals, couples, and families. While change happens from within, we all exist in relationship – to our family of origin, our work associates, our friends, our romantic partners, and our children. We also exist in relationship to our thoughts, feelings, desires, intentions, belief systems, and core Self. I believe we all have the capacity to lead abundant lives and have healthy relationships. As licensed therapist, I can help you build upon your own strengths and resources, releasing beliefs that no longer serve you, and then translate those inner shifts to changes in your external relationships.
There is a saying I like which is attributed to a corporate leadership trainer, Dan Bobinski, “Nothing changes if nothing changes.” It’s more succinct and proactive than Einstein's definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results. Are you ready to make positive changes in your life?
I am a Masters level therapist with over 20 years’ experience with diverse populations. I graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University-Los Angeles and am a Licensed Marital & Family Therapist in the State of Missouri. I have extensive experience working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, stress management, self-esteem, domestic violence, and relationship issues.
My approach is eclectic, incorporating theories, such as cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, narrative, and mindfulness, to ensure your specific concerns are addressed in a way most effective for you. We will work collaboratively to identify areas of distress and personalize your therapeutic goals to accomplish the most meaningful results.
I look forward to working with you to discover your best Self!
