My Background and Approach

Narrative Therapy is the underpinning for everything I do in therapy. My job is to explore with you and ask good questions. I don’t promise quick fixes, simple answers, or five steps to a known outcome. I see people as separate from problems; YOU are not the problem. I’m more interested in the full and complex picture of your experience than in labeling or diagnosing. I believe our dominant cultural stories about what (and who) is (and is not) acceptable do damage to people in untold ways and limit what we consider possible in our lives.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

From the shooting of Michael Brown to the Stockley verdict, St. Louis has been ground zero for a new era of activism. Some dedicated leaders and activists have been on the streets for a long time. Many others who have never been to a protest before are feeling the need to get involved. I work with activists at risk for burnout, and I believe that in order to build sustainable change, we MUST find ways to support the mental health of those who most frequently find themselves on the front lines. In addition to working with activists personally, I provide free consultation and referrals to those who need to find someone in network with their insurance, or to those who would feel more comfortable with a therapist of a different gender, ethnicity, etc. I volunteered for four years as an LGBT grief support group facilitator, and for two years in hospice, sitting with families as they worked through end of life decisions for loved ones.
