“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become!” Carl Gustav Jung.
My passion has always been with helping others and I have a long history of supporting families through difficult times while helping them find the light in the darkness of the difficulty. I pride myself in being able to understand others’ needs, whether it be couples, individuals, adolescents, or the whole family to experience the most this life has to offer.
I actively work as a team player with my clients to help them discover solutions to the issues they experience. I specialize in working with trauma and abuse, PTSD, children, adolescents, and adults. The treatment modalities I primarily work with are CBT and Trauma Systems Therapy. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
I graduated from Fort Hays State University with a BS in Psychology and went on to get my MS in Community Counseling. I have a long history of working with a variety of clients. I have spent years working in psychiatric hospitals for children and Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) with children and their families. I have worked with children and families in the foster care system to assist in achieving permanency in the home or getting back into the biological home. I have engaged in individual, group, family, and couples therapy. I obtained my clinical license in September of 2014 and became a nationally certified counselor in 2017. In 2020 I became a Board-Approved Clinical Supervisor and in 2021 I was approved for licensure in the State of MO as well. I am currently dual licensed in the state of Kansas and Missouri as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. In addition to my direct client care services, I have a history of developing and presenting training sessions on trauma-informed care and working as the lead member of a team challenged to implement Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) within a system of care. My license number is 2380 and my national certification number is #1069479.
