St. Louis therapist for 19 years “Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.” -K Clark
I base my relationship with every client, and couple, on the certainty that when challenges occur, something better is trying to reveal itself. So rather than go down or lose hope, it's actually the best time to give it your all. It may be hard to believe, but whatever difficulty you might be facing, it's actually a good sign. You must be ready to break free of some type of fear or pattern that is limiting you from reaching your potential — and this pain or stress may very well be the wake up call you need.
"There is a rule that Right before an amazing revelation or miracle in your life, you will feel alone." Michael Berg
In my experience, Counseling works because constant growth works. Willingness to change is the best way to take control over your own happiness. Is it easy? No. Is it simple? Yes — Once you begin to understand some basic universal principles, are willing to be honest with yourself and then take simple actions to transform. As a soul searcher myself, I can only help you risk and trust the process of change to the extent that I am personally willing to do so. I can say from experience that when you have a true desire to change and an open mind for new concepts about life, relationships, and yourself, results that feel miraculous can and will happen. It can be terrifying to be honest with ourselves, to be vulnerable, to stop blaming or looking outside of ourselves and change. But I say with conviction that the effort and personal responsibility required to peel away the layers to reveal your true self ... it's a small price to pay for the fulfillment, purpose and peace that you are meant to have.
A bit about my background: I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in St. Louis with a Doctorate in Counseling and Masters in Psychology. A Missouri Approved Counseling Supervisor, I am grateful for the privilege of counseling for 19 years—in private practice—working with couples, individual men and women, families and groups. More about my background.
Whether coming in with or without their partners, Relationship Issues are a predominant specialty of mine, because honestly, the need is so great and the value and meaning found in marriage and family runs so deep. Whether it's a crisis, chronic fighting, a loss of passion, an affair, built up resentment, or pre-marital concerns, it is my honor to do what I can to mend and enhance the bond for those who seek help from me as their Marriage Counselor--whether engaged or married, straight or gay, dating or separated. The health of any relationship is directly connected to the health and emotional independence of the two involved. So be prepared to change your partner less and work on yourself more.
In addition to marriage counseling, other counseling Specialties include self esteem, spiritual growth, anger management, overcoming fears and anxiety, divorce, addiction, transforming negative thinking, healing old wounds, and finding your purpose. All with an eye toward empowering each of you to heal and overcome, improve your relationships and tap into the bigger picture of your given potential for unlimited happiness and achievement.
I take my work and relationship with each and every client seriously and personally; so much so that I feel I must continue growing and improving my abilities to optimally help you change your life. Finding a path and a life that you can claim as your own - and that you love - is priceless. It's the one thing no one can ever give you, that you can only create for yourself ... internal satisfaction.
Together, it is my privilege to help you find and create yours!
