MY SPECIALTIES

INDIVIDUAL and
GROUP COUNSELING

I hold individual sessions for all ages as well as specific groups. I hold parent groups on various topics. I hold teen groups based on current needs. Topics include: healthy relationships, trauma, anger and much more. 

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

Healthy relationships start young. We teach our children, we learn from the adults around us. I am especially passionate about teen dating raltionships and building healthy realtionships from the beginning. 

STRESS & TRAUMA

I am a trained EMDR therapist as well as practice trauma informed art therapy. I believe in facing our traumas so they no longer have power over us today. 

PARENTING DIFFICULTIES

Parenting is extremely rewarding but can also be very difficult. I value parent involvement and the modeling a parent gives when they show their children, sometimes parents need help too. There is so much value in seeking help when we need it; at any stage. 

COMMUNITY ART

Community art is my passion. Coming together to create a commonality of art can be so powerful. I believe this is espeically true for teens who are developmentally focused on peer relationships. Growing a healthy community is key. 

CONSULTING

I can consult on various therapeutic needs. If you are an organziation looking for help building an art therapy program contact me for more information. 

TRAININGS

If your agency is looking for trauma informed trainings contact me for discussion on your needs and to discuss and rates.

SUPERVISION

I offer supervision for both art therapy (ATR) and professional counselor in both Missouri and Illinois. Contact me for rates. 

EMDR Trauma Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, yes that is really the name. No wonder we shorten it to EMDR! This is an incredible brain based therapy that sounds crazy, but I promise ignites some pretty incredible healing.
