414 East Broadway suite 401a, Columbia, MO 65201, USA

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years’ experience. I am a graduate of Mizzou with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and of the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University St. Louis for my Masters in Social Work. My primary focus is on assisting individuals dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression.
I have worked in community mental health, federally qualified health centers, the university setting and now private practice. Over the years I have worked with a variety of individuals, including many First Responders and their families dealing with grief, trauma, stress, anxiety, difficulties with sleep, depression, and relationship issues.
I firmly believe that finding the right therapist gives the greatest opportunity for success and therefore offer a 30 minute “meet and greet” so that we can see if my style is what you are seeking in a therapist as well as for me to make sure your presenting challenges are ones that I am well suited to address. My approach is straight-forward and action based, utilizing a variety of evidenced based approaches that can be worked into your day to day functioning. My goal is to make the process both effective and efficient.
I would welcome the opportunity to meet you and to help you with your challenges. Feel free to contact me directly at (573) 999-6038 or at
