I became interested in counseling as a career when I came to understand and accept my strengths in the area of understanding, insight, and empathy. I love being a witness to the powerful changes that can occur in people's lives when they take the time to focus on their own physical, mental, and emotional needs.
I believe joy and pleasure are our birthright. I want to be a part of clearing away the things that get in the way of your or your child's claim to satisfaction, peace, and contentment. I create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore who you are, what you need, and how you can reach for and gather more of what you want.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a private practice in Maplewood, MO. I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents experiencing intense emotional reactions that affect their behavior. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, reading, and creative and artistic projects. I also facilitate a monthly Red Tent, providing a space and time set aside for women to gather in mutual support.
