What Clients Say
I was numb and used to escape and check out... it was ruining our marriage...I now look forward to counseling and didn't know expressing my emotions could make our marriage better.
Losing our child was tearing us apart because we weren't able to grieve together, we were fighting against each other instead of with each other... now we're in this together
I didn't know we could ever heal from my infidelity.... we went from avoiding and only crying to building a new future and somehow are closer than we were before
Counseling in St. Louis
My Counseling Specialties
Communication, anger, sexual issues, pornography, checking out, fatherhood and more.
I have 2 years' experience at an inpatient treatment. My clients have reduced or stopped needing higher levels of care.
Clinically proven to heal trauma and PTSD. This approach is often much quicker than talk therapy but can be exhausting.
No one is perfect. Every relationship needs guidance. Counseling is not failing. I primarily use EFT for couples counseling.
Life can be overwhelming and disappointing - and that's without a global pandemic! Sometimes unexpected events happen that shake us, leave us powerless and hyper-vigilant. Sometimes we look at our relationships and wonder, "how did we get here? I never imagined so much pain would come after our wedding day."
Whatever is weighing on your heart, you don't have to do this alone.
You can explore solutions and find relief with counseling in a safe, compassionate, confidential environment.
Be empowered and supported on your journey to a fuller, richer life.
St. Louis Couples & Marriage Counseling
No one gets married thinking, "This'll never last... this person is the worst... I can't stand them!" Wounds left untended and unexplored fester and fuel the fire of conflict. Using books, and regular therapy can save your marriage. Marriage counseling can make your bond stronger and better than ever!
Trama has been defined as a sudden, life-altering event. Trama can often lead to PTSD. Through research EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing) has been shown to cure PTSD and give people their life back. EMDR therapy is also used for negative beliefs about ourselves that rule our lives. Contact an EMDR Therapist today.
Help with My Relationships
Relationships are complicated! Friendships, family, and romantic relationships can leave us confused, lonely, and discouraged. Growth in direct communication, boundaries, self-love, and working through your story are just some of the ways relationships can be improved. Relationship Therapy is just a phone call away.
Counseling Depression & Anxiety
Depression and anxiety are exhausting! They try to steal your life and you don't feel like the true you. Every day feels like a battle, but it doesn't have to! You weren't meant to do this alone. With the help of counseling, you can enjoy life again!
Do I have to commit to "x" number of counseling sessions?
No. You can schedule as many or as few counseling sessions as you want; there is no obligation. If you decide to cancel and cancel with 48 hours' notice you will not be billed! Though there is no commitment, keep in mind that counseling is most effective when regularly attended until goals are met.
Do you take insurance?
No. Insurance companies require session updates, notes, and personally identifiable information to be shared with them. Therapy should be a safe and confidential place and I do not believe others should be part of this experience.
However: many insurance companies will reimburse Out-Of-Network counseling sessions. I have yet to encounter a company requiring any progress updates or information from counseling sessions when you use OON benefits.
I provide paperwork for you to appeal to your insurance company for reimbursement. This is free money, so I encourage you to call them.
Can I talk to you before scheduling a counseling session?
Due to demand and "no shows" I am sorry to say I am no longer able to offer 10-minute consultations.
How many sessions should I expect?
Many clients reach their goals after 3-6 months and typically within 20-30 sessions. Past results do not guarantee future ones and every case is different.
What is Counseling?
Counseling is a safe place for you to be heard, explore your thoughts and feelings, find compassion, be lovingly challenged to grow, receive education, and be overall supported in your journey of meeting your goals. Exchange ineffective and draining patterns with life-giving ones.
Are you seeing people in person?
I offer counseling sessions in-person and via Video
