In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I have always been an "overthinker" so I am familiar with the ways our thoughts can impact the way we feel. I was drawn to cognitive behavioral therapy because it gave some clear ways to not only recognize how our thoughts could play out, but also ways to start to reframe or challenge those thoughts and create different ones. I'm also pretty sarcastic, and love to infuse a little humor in sessions with people. I really want to connect to the people I see and lighten the heaviness they've been carrying.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Since taking a Psychology class in high school, I've always been interested in human behavior and what makes us tick. I got my undergraduate degree in Psychology and went on to get my Master's in Counseling and Guidance with an emphasis in Mental Health. I've always been that person that others have felt comfortable sharing things with and now I'm lucky I get to do that as my job.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

If you're looking to work with someone that keeps things relaxed and personal, I'm definitely a good fit! I have an eclectic approach to therapy (meaning I use a lot of different techniques or modalities) to make sure that I'm meeting the needs and goals of those I work with. I always tell clients that my job is to make sure that you get the help you need, even if that's not with me! And I truly mean that! It's so important for you to feel like you have a good connection with your therapist, otherwise therapy won't be as effective for you.

Work History

I have worked with many different populations over the last 20 years. I started my career working as a substance abuse counselor with individuals struggling with opioid dependency. After moving to St. Louis in 2008 I worked for CenterPointe Hospital running and Intensive Outpatient Program where I worked with individuals struggling with issues such as Depression, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder to name a few. For the past 9 years I have worked for Washington University School of Medicine where I specialize in treating women in the perinatal period. I have worked with women through pregnancy and postpartum, as well as those that might have experienced a traumatic birth experience, fetal or infant loss, as well as those that might have experienced the diagnosis of anomalies during their pregnancy. In the spring of 2022, I opened my private practice where I began to see men and women struggling with various issues in life and have loved every minute of it!
