About My Clients

I specialize in treating insomnia without drugs and in helping people who have dissociative disorders, particularly dissociative identity disorder. My clients, with dissociative disorders, by the time they reach me, have usually had a rough journey through the mental health system and have been givien a laundry list of diagnoses. Many of my clients with dissociative disorders have encountered medical professionals and even therapists who have dismissed their experiences.

My Background and Approach

I am a board-certified counselor licensed in both Missouri and Kansas. I have extra training and credentials in grief counseling and trauma and I'm also board-certified in telemental health (video counseling). My approach is client-centered and I tailor it to each individual's needs. I use CBT, ACT, and compassion frequently in my work. I am interested in maximizing a client's strengths rather than focusing on weaknesses. My clients are equal partners in the work we do together. My goals is to work myself out of a job with each client because they have the skills and tools they need from our work together. The counseling relationship is the single biggest factor in the results you get. Because of that, I offer a free 15 to 20 minute video consultation. I want my people to be confident I am the right therapist for them before we get started.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My core belief is that, as Maya Angelou said, each of us is doing the best we can with what we know and that when we know better we do better. I also believe that we were shaped by many factors outside of our control (such as how we were raised, the genes we inherited, etc.) but the great news is that we can work to make those outcomes more to our liking. Both of my children are members of the LGBT community. One of my children is transgender and of course has my full support. I have a particular desire to support members of the LGBTQIA+ community because I have seen how difficult this society can make it for people to live authentically and that these difficulties negatively impact LGBTQ health.
