I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker & Licensed Master Addiction Counselor, with over 20 years of experience in the behavioral health field. I received my Level I & Level II EMDR trauma treatment training through the EMDR Institute, & have been practicing EMDR since 2012. I am a member of the professional association EMDR Therapists of Greater Kansas City. I am trained in Brainspotting & Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) as additional therapies for trauma-related issues. I also hold professional certifications in Clinical Trauma Treatment (CCTP) & Dialectical Behavior Therapy (C-DBT).
My therapy practice focuses on providing a customized therapeutic experience to adults and couples. I specialize in complex trauma-related stressors/PTSD, personality disorders, depression, anxiety, addiction, and attachment issues. I also provide LSCSW clinical supervision, MSW practicum field instruction, & clinical consultation.
I believe in providing therapy designed to enhance your quality of life. I offer a compassionate & empowering healing process through a trauma-informed lens. Making the choice to ask for help & begin a therapeutic process can be difficult. Please know that when we meet, I will take the time to answer your questions, hear your story, & make sure I am a good fit for you.
