Are you looking for a therapist in St. Louis?
I have always had a passion for connecting with and helping people. While working with adolescents and families early in my career, I recognized the immense transformative value of the therapeutic relationship. Trained in EMDR, CBT, DBT, and Trauma, I look to those modalities to guide my individualized approach for each client. But, I always go back to my belief that connection, support, trust, genuine empathy, and respect create the heartbeat of the process.
I build rapport quickly and see the strengths in everyone who enters my office. My style is warm and open. I am skilled at diffusing stressful situations, building trust, motivating clients, and teaching behavior intervention strategies while empowering clients to achieve their highest potential. I have years of experience working with resistant clients who have previously been unable to engage in therapy.
