My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in the states of Missouri and Kansas. I am therapeutic, but to the point. I work with individuals and couples to understand their strengths, as well as to learn to modify their behaviors and thought processes to obtain more effective and desired outcomes.I work through an attachment focused lens where we look at your strengths to overcome adversity. For 14 years I was a police officer for Kansas City, MO. With that being said, I identify as a caregiver of a veteran who became a therapist. I always thought being an officer was a glorified social worker that carried a gun! This does allow me to identify on a deeper level of understanding the veteran family dynamics in all areas of healing. I am straight and to the point with my clients sometimes using a fair share of sarcasm combined with appropriate clinical skills to help people heal. My time as a police officer and now a veteran spouse has proven to be beneficial in communicating with those that have served in the military. I know the challenges of veteran and military caregivers as I live this life firsthand every day. I look forward to supporting you therapeutically through your journey of becoming the best you that you can be!

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I have been a caregiver to my husband for the past seven years. He is an Army veteran and has PTSD, suicidal ideation, anxiety, chronic depression, and a few physical injuries as well. I have gone through a suicide attempt with him and through our own struggles with these challenges I have learned a lot about myself. It is so important we don't lose sight of who we are outside of caregiving. It is so easy to do and often times an unconscious decision. Through my own challenges I have found a passion to be there with other veteran and military family members through their challenging times. Together is so much better than feeling like you are all alone.
