My Approach to Helping
I’m so grateful you have found me. I know it can be hard to ask for help for lots of reasons. I want you to know that I am proud of you for taking this step in your healing journey, and I would be honored to walk with you along the way.
I believe in each person’s capacity to grow and heal in a way that is meaningful to them. My goal is to help you strengthen your sense of power, control, and hope in your life. My approach is based in the belief that I am not the expert on your life; you are. I believe that you may already know what the right thing is for you - you might just need a safe space to figure out what that is.
I am a clinical social worker, licensed in both KS & MO. I am a member of Postpartum Support International (PSI) and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). My passion lies in providing therapy services to adolescents and adults who are experiencing distress related to eating disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief-loss, postpartum, and life transitions.
I believe that you have what it takes to cope with whatever hardship you are facing. You can create change in your life - sometimes it helps when another person believes in you so you may also start believing in you. To me, Helix Mental Health means having a belief in your own ability to cope.
You are worth it.
