I am a Professional Counselor licensed by the State of Missouri. My physical office is located in a neighborhood just a few blocks from the heart of the historic district of downtown Lees Summit. Also, Telehealth services extend to anyone physically located within the state.
My Clinical Professional Counselor license awarded by the State of Kansas allows me to provide Telehealth services for anyone physically located within the state.
My education and training in Counseling began with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Missouri – Kansas City. Followed by a Master of Arts degree in Counseling through Webster University.
Beyond formal education, I continuously seek out professional trainings that grow my knowledge and skills. They make me a better therapist. Trainings include: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Advanced EMDR trainings and Levels 1 and 2 of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. Together these inform my ability to treat trauma, developmental wounds, and attachment issues in ways that focus on the uniqueness of each client.
I maintain Board Certification with the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). And passed both the National Counselors Exam and the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Exam.
I am a Certified EMDR Clinician.
