About My Clients

I love working with adults amidst life transition as well as fine and performing artists. If you find yourself in the middle of a shift in life and seek help validating your truth, I would love to help your explore that. As a former theatre actor, I know what it’s like to shift in and out of the roles played both on and off the stage. If you’re a performing artist with challenges in mood, identity, or finding your artistic voice, you don’t need to navigate that alone. I’m here to help.

My Background and Approach

I come to counseling as an artist first. I spent 15 years performing in professional theatre before choosing to expand into the realm of helping others. I hold a BFA in Music Theatre from Illinois Wesleyan University and an MA in Counseling & Guidance from University of Missouri, Kansas City. I am currently a PLPC therapist in Missouri. While I always use evidenced based practices when working with clients, I believe that counseling is both an art and a science. Building a relationship is an art. The art of listening with true understanding is a potent agent for change. Research says that the quality of the therapeutic relationship itself is the greatest predictor of successful treatment. I am Person-Centered therapist which means that I value empathy and unconditional acceptance. I believe that you are the expert on your life. I follow you in the process, but also use Narrative Therapy and mindfulness techniques to help you reach your goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that counselors have an ethical responsibility to be agents of social justice. I take actions and support organizations that promote a more equitable, accessible, and just society.

I have experience with the following
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Taoism
  • Wicca/Paganism
  • Interfaith
  • Multifaith
