I received my MA in Counseling from Covenant Theological Seminary and am a licensed counselor in Missouri.
My personal life experiences are vast and help me to understand and connect with clients from varied backgrounds. Years in the corporate and non-profit sectors give me a unique ability to relate to clients in any profession. Helping people discover the importance of their stories, and helping them navigate their unique process of healing and renewal, are some of my greatest delights.
I believe accessing our creativity, wandering about in nature and allowing quiet exploration in times of solitude and silence are integral components of the healing process. I offer walk-and-talk therapy as an alternative to traditional in-office therapy, when appropriate, and as weather permits.
I am a contracted preferred counselor for pastors and their families through Converge Mid America, and spent three years leading women’s cohort groups at Covenant Seminary in St. Louis. I am available to lead retreats, workshops and seminars, and enjoy partnering with area churches, businesses and community organizations.
Grief, sorrow and desperation are familiar companions, and I know shame and fear. Likewise, the joy of childlike belly laughing, goofy dancing around the kitchen, and celebrating life’s myriad minuscule triumphs buoy my soul. Let’s be human together.
