I am a licensed clinical social worker in Missouri and a licensed specialist clinical social worker in Kansas. I am licensed as a master addictions counselor through NAADAC, a certified reciprocal alcohol and drug counselor in Missouri, as well as a certified reciprocal prevention specialist in Missouri. I am also a medication assisted recovery specialist in Missouri and certified tobacco treatment specialist through NAADAC. I am trained in EMDR, Mindfulness, CBT, exposure therapy.
I have particular interest in trauma, depressive issues/mood disorders, anxiety and addictions.
I have been doing counseling since 2014 and strongly believe in a fully cooperative relationship with the patient in order to have the most optimal outcomes. I believe that the patient should be in charge of their treatment and have guidance from the therapist. I do not dictate or tell patients what to do. Instead, I will offer options and explore those options and leave the decision to the patient.
All therapy sessions will be held in the patient’s home.
