I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker & Licensed Master Addiction Counselor, with over 20 years of experience in the behavioral health field. I received my Level I & Level II EMDR trauma treatment training through the EMDR Institute, & have been practicing EMDR since 2012. I am a member of EMDR Therapists of Greater Kansas City. I am also trained in Brainspotting as an additional treatment for trauma-related issues. I hold professional certifications in Trauma Treatment (CCTP) & Dialectical Behavior Therapy (C-DBT). I believe in providing a compassionate & empowering healing process through a trauma-informed lens. My psychotherapy practice focuses on adolescents & adults specializing in complex trauma-related issues/PTSD, personality disorders, depression, anxiety, addiction, and attachment issues. I also provide LSCSW clinical supervision, MSW practicum field instruction, & clinical consultation. Making the choice to ask for help and begin a therapeutic process can be difficult. Please know that when we meet, I will take the time to answer your questions, hear your story, and make sure I am a good fit for you.
