I graduated from Columbia College with my Bachelor's in Psychology/Sociology. I then went on to Mizzou and graduated with my MSW in social work and am now a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been working in the mental health field for the past 8 years. Prior to that, I was a volunteer EMT for 15 years. I know the types of things that you have seen and dealt with. I also understand how reaching out for help when you are the one others rely on is difficult. To say that working with individuals like yourself is my passion almost does not seem like a strong enough statement. I work with individuals who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, substance use, and more. I am EMDR certified. I also utilize a person-centered, solution-focused approach. In therapy, you will gain the tools you need to deal with difficult situations now as well as in the future. Working in this field we know there will continue to be those days. You will learn skills to help you navigate past distressing situations. That will be an asset to you when you do encounter those rough days. You will recognize when and how to use a variety of techniques to help you navigate past those rough days. You will learn to recognize the support that you already have in your life. We will take these skills and supports that you already have and add new ones that will allow you to become the best you that you can be. You will learn many skills that will help you to feel better. I am betting you will be able to teach others some of these tips and tricks in a work setting when you recognize someone that is struggling. My goal is for you to feel good about yourself and the amazing work that you are doing! People depend on you and I want you to know you can depend on me.
