If you have found yourself here, it means you are thinking about making some changes in your life. I believe counseling requires a collaborative relationship between the therapist and client. Together we can learn to understand how your experiences and history have shaped you, impacted you, and influenced your thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
I am a licensed specialist clinical social worker. I graduated from Wichita State University with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Social Work. I have over 25 years’ experience working with individuals, children and families. I have worked in the mental health field for the last 17 years.
