I started working in community mental health 8 years ago and realized my passion is to offer compassion and skills to those struggling to see the path ahead. I enjoy learning about others; their past and present, which can be a tool to use in shaping change for the future. A strong value I hold is the importance of connection with my clients and I work hard to do my part in building a bond of trust with each client. I also have a background in education and believe therapy is a great opportunity to teach clients the skills they need to achieve the goals they have set for themselves, as well as new information to shape their experience along the way.
My goal at SMF Counseling is to help put you at ease by providing a space where you can be comfortable to share about your life and work on your goals. I will work hard to build a relationship so you feel safe to become vulnerable about the tough stuff, which I believe is when the real change can begin. I will help you be honest with yourself in a nonjudgmental way. I currently offer telehealth therapy and am licensed in Kansas and Missouri. I look forward to getting to know you!
